The Cost of Cyber Crime


The latest IT trends like cloud-based services and the Internet of Things pose significant security risks for HP OEM partners and their customers. Jerry Ward from HP Enterprise Security Services published a thought-provoking blog reviewing a new report on the costs of cyberattacks from the Ponemon Institute, an independent research organization specializing in security.

Ponemon interviewed 250+ enterprises across the globe to quantify the financial implications of IT security breaches over a one year period. Some of the more interesting data points from the report include:

  • The 250+ enterprises interviewed experienced a total of 1700+ attacks
  • The average annualized cost including productivity and information loss was $7.6 million per enterprise
  • Costs of attacks were up 10.4% compared to the previous year’s study

Help your customers take a proactive approach to security

One of the major findings of the report was that many IT organizations are simply not well prepared. In fact, the average time to fully contain an attack is 31 days.

Today’s security threats are increasingly complex and constantly evolving. Most IT organizations lack the expertise and financial means to stay ahead of the curve.   Many are turning to managed security service providers like HP’s Managed Security Services organization to extend the capabilities of their internal security teams. Our team lives and breathes Internet security. With 5,000+ subject matter experts, our Managed Security Services organization helps businesses improve their security posture and reduce risks, providing a wide variety of services from data loss prevention, to DDoS protection, to identity and access management and managed endpoint security.
