The costs of cybersecurity breaches are staggering.
The costs of cybersecurity breaches are staggering. A recent estimate placed the average cost to an organization hit by a cyber attack at about $3.9 million, with the costs of mega breaches (breaches of 50+ million records) approaching $350 million.1
The danger is clear, and yet the threat seems to have caught many organizations flat-footed. Consider the following:
Hundreds of thousands of cyber jobs in the U.S. are currently vacant.
Postings for cyber jobs take longer to fill than postings in general.
Many cybersecurity experts warn that employees present as much of a threat as outside hackers.
