Re: Caution with the numbers
The actual numbers themselves are not as important as the overarching message -- in a data-based society, we need to pay more attention to accesspoints. According to the 2013 HP Ponemon Cost of Cyber Crime report (http://www.hpenterprisesecurity.com/ponemon-study-2013), all industries fall victim to cybercrime, but to different degrees. The report breakd out the average annualized cost of cyber crime appears by industry segment, and organizations in defense, financial services, and energy and utilities experience substantially higher cyber crime costs than organizations in retail, media and consumer products. Simply put hackers are under far more targeted campaigns while utilizing higher levels of sophistication.
