Cybercrime is on the rise—Is your organization protected?

Guest Post by Frank Mong
VP/GM of HP Security Solutions




The economics of cybercrime are frightening.  The average cost of a cyber attack is $11.6 million.  We’re seeing approximately 122 successful attacks per week, and a 26 percent yearly increase in attacks.  In a recent study, which examined 60 U.S. organizations across multiple industries, it was found that hackers are targeting companies of all sizes. We saw that smaller organizations suffered big losses from:

  • Viruses
  • Worms
  • Trojans
  • Phishing
  • Malware

Larger corporations in our study saw losses from:

  • Denial of service
  • Malicious code
  • Web-based attacks

Regardless of the size of your corporation, cybercrime is taking a toll on your bottom line.  So, you have to ask yourself: Is your organization protected?

We invite you to join us on October 29th, for a one-hour webinar in which HP will discuss the results of the 4th Annual Cost of Cyber Crime Study, conducted by the Ponemon Institute, and sponsored by HP Enterprise Security.  In this webinar, you’ll learn which industries are most at risk, what governance practices should be implemented, as well as be exposed to:

  • How long it takes to respond to an attack
  • How to fully neutralize an attack
  • How to take proactive action with advanced security intelligence solutions

Register for The Economics of Cyber Crime webinar, and learn how you can mitigate cybercrime risks in your organization.
