Most Companies Suffer Reputation Damage After Security Incidents

New Kroll Annual Global Fraud & Risk Report says 86% of companies worldwide experienced security incidents and information theft and loss in the past twelve months.

Seventy percent of organizations worldwide suffered at least one security incident during the past year - up from 68% in the previous year, a new study by Kroll found.

Meanwhile, security incidents and information theft and loss hit some 86% of companies in the past twelve months. The new 2017/18 Kroll Annual Global Fraud & Risk Report also shows that physical theft or loss of intellectual property most commonly occured these security incidents, at 41%.

"People instinctively think about data being targeted by cyber attacks, but not all threats to information are confined to the digital realm. There is a convergence between physical and digital threats, with issues arising from equipment with sensitive data being stolen or lost, for example, or employees with access to highly sensitive information accidentally or intentionally causing a breach," said Jason Smolanoff, senior managing director and global cyber security practice leader for Kroll.

Nearly two-thirds of companies said incidents due to fraud (65%), cyber (67%), or security (66%) incidents had damaged their reputations. Some 23% say their company suffered losses of 7% or more in revenues.

7% is tough but...
7% loss is a rough hit to take financially however brand reputation is monumental amongst many industries and can cripple your business. Just look at Arthur Andersen, the firm that was in charge of Enron auditing. Based on negative brand reputation due to unethical practices there big 5 firm was driven to extinction.

CVE-2020-25596
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-23
An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.14.x. x86 PV guest kernels can experience denial of service via SYSENTER. The SYSENTER instruction leaves various state sanitization activities to software. One of Xen's sanitization paths injects a #GP fault, and incorrectly delivers it twice to the guest. T...
CVE-2020-25597
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-23
An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.14.x. There is mishandling of the constraint that once-valid event channels may not turn invalid. Logic in the handling of event channel operations in Xen assumes that an event channel, once valid, will not become invalid over the life time of a guest. Howeve...
CVE-2020-25598
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-23
An issue was discovered in Xen 4.14.x. There is a missing unlock in the XENMEM_acquire_resource error path. The RCU (Read, Copy, Update) mechanism is a synchronisation primitive. A buggy error path in the XENMEM_acquire_resource exits without releasing an RCU reference, which is conceptually similar...
CVE-2020-25599
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-23
An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.14.x. There are evtchn_reset() race conditions. Uses of EVTCHNOP_reset (potentially by a guest on itself) or XEN_DOMCTL_soft_reset (by itself covered by XSA-77) can lead to the violation of various internal assumptions. This may lead to out of bounds memory a...

PUBLISHED: 2020-09-23
An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.14.x. Out of bounds event channels are available to 32-bit x86 domains. The so called 2-level event channel model imposes different limits on the number of usable event channels for 32-bit x86 domains vs 64-bit or Arm (either bitness) ones. 32-bit x86 domains...
