Cybercrime is a costly global business disruptor. In the U.S., companies nationwide are contending with soaring numbers of breaches, according to FBI assessments1 , yet are doing a poor job of defending against cybercriminals. The number of U.S. data breaches tracked in 2016 hit an all-time high of 1,0932 , which represents a 40 percent hike over 2015 incidents. The average consolidated total cost of a data breach grew from $3.8 million to $4 million3 ,according to an IBM-sponsored study conducted by the Ponemon Institute. The study also reports that the average cost incurred for each lost or stolen record containing sensitive and confidential information increased from $154 to $158.
