According to the Verizon Data Breach report, there were nearly 80,000 security incidents and more than 2,000 confirmed data breaches in the previous year, most of which were perpetrated by external threat actors. These attacks and breaches took minutes to execute yet took days to detect and correct. Phishing, software vulnerabilities through unpatched software, malware, card skimmers, and zero-day exploits were leading factors contributing to losses. IBM and Ponemon Institute studied the economic impacts of breaches and concluded that the average economic impact of a data breach is nearly $6.5 million, an 11% increase over the previous year. McAfee and associates estimated the overall global cybercrime impact to exceed $400 billion annually. And there are more breaches reported every day.
