HP recently released the results of a new report from a study conducted by the Ponemon Institute.
Of particular note to those of us who investigate cyberattacks, the average time to resolve a cyberattack is now 18 days with an average cost of $416,000. That a whopping 70% increase from last year's study. And if the attack comes from the inside, the time to resolve it rachets up to a scary 45 days.
There's a silver lining though - organizations deploying security information and incident management solutions showed a cost savings of 25%, primarily from slowing down the extent of the attack.
In another survey, Ponemon reported that respondents suffered 72 successful cyberattacks per week (ouch!), a 45% increase from last year. It would be nice to chalk up a victory for the good guys, but the bad guys are dominating the scoreboard for now.
