According to the Ponemon Institute’s 2013 Cost of Cyber Crime study, the average cost to businesses of cyber crime is more than $7M per year—a 30% increase over last year. And the average number of attacks per company grew 20% to 73 successful attacks annually.
With the incidence and cost of cyber crime rising sharply, this study of 234 companies in six countries details the types of cyber attacks found to be most common and the losses resulting from each type of attack. There’s good news, though. Companies with robust security governance practices reduced annual losses by $800,000. And those implementing security intelligence systems drove down costs by an average of $2M and achieved 21% ROI on those systems.
Understanding the cost of cyber crime and the effectiveness of security countermeasures lets you more effectively plan security measures for your organization and estimate the ROI you might achieve with different security solutions.

    • Business losses to cyber crime are still growing every year Highlights from the 4th annual Ponemon Institute survey, 2013 Costs of Cyber Crime © Copyright 2013 Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P. The information contained herein is subject to change without notice.
    • About the Ponemon Cost of Cyber Crime Study 2013 The fourth annual Ponemon Institute Cost of Cyber Crime Study: Global Report, sponsored by HP Enterprise Security, is based on a representative sample of 234 organizations in the following six countries: United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, France and Japan. Separate research reports are available for each country. Cyber attacks generally refer to criminal activity conducted via the Internet. These attacks can include stealing an organization’s intellectual property, confiscating online bank accounts, creating and distributing viruses on other computers, posting confidential business information on the Internet and disrupting a country’s critical national infrastructure. In all countries, business disruptions and information loss or theft are the most significant consequence of a cyber attack. Based on these findings, organizations need to be more vigilant in protecting their most sensitive and confidential information. 2 © Copyright 2013 Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P.

    • …threats are relentlessly increasing… 20% Increase in cyber attacks in one year 1.4 successful attacks per company per week Cyber attacks are now common occurrences. The companies in the study experienced 343 successful attacks per week, or 1.4 successful attacks per company per week, an increase of 20 percent from last year’s study reported, which reported 262 successful attacks on average per week.

    • …and taking longer to resolve The threat landscape is attack by attack type Average days to resolve evolving rapidly Malicious insider attacks can take 53 days on average to contain* * Resolution does not necessarily mean that the attack has been completely stopped. For example, some attacks remain dormant and undetected (i.e., modern day attacks).

    • What happened? “The bad guys are just smarter. Their attacks are stealthier and therefore more difficult to detect, and the attacks last longer. Like a biological virus in the human body, they’re very difficult to remove from the system.” —Dr. Larry Ponemon 10 © Copyright 2013 Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P.

    • Fighting back “People and technologies are coming together, and we’re actually coming up with defense capabilities that didn’t exist before, like the creation of security intelligence technology. SIEM is one example, but there are others—Big Data analytics, for example—that are giving the good guys a tool to understand the problems.” —Dr. Larry Ponemon 12 © Copyright 2013 Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P.
