Ponemon Institute’s 2013 Cost of Cyber Crime study finds the average company in the U.S. experiences more than 100 successful cyber attacks each year at a cost of $11.6M. That’s an increase of 26% from last year. Companies in other regions fared better, but still experienced significant losses. This year’s annual study was conducted in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, Japan and France and surveyed over 230 organizations.
But the study also shows that companies who implement enabling security technologies reduced losses by nearly $4M, and those employing good security governance practices reduced costs by an average of $1.5M.
