In a recent study4 conducted by the Ponemon Institute, 90 percent of respondents indicated that they have had two or more breaches in the past 12 months, and nearly two-thirds responded that they have had multiple breaches during the same period of time. These breaches can be incredibly expensive. Studies show that the average cost per incident of a data breach in the United States is $7.2 million, with one of the largest breaches costing $35.3 million5 to resolve.
Security lapses involving personal information can also erode consumer trust; more than half of Internet users avoid buying online because theyâ€™re afraid that their financial information might be stolen. With stakes so high, organizations need to focus their security efforts to prevent these and other breaches.
