Hi Sachin,

you are right regarding the Middle East, I consider the area full of strategic targets for state-sponsored hackers. Sincerely I'm surprised by the data on India, I consider them really strange.

Pierluigi

Re: interesting note
This is a very interesting piece of article, thank you very much. I think data breach in deed varies from place to place and their causes must be different; if you look at India for instance, you will find out that data breach is caused mainly by system glitch; you may wonder why there is no much criminal attack in India as compared to Middle East. I think this is because, in Middle East there is a high rate of cyber crimes and has the highest numbers of sponsored hackers both foreign and domestic.

Re: interesting note
Hi Marilyn,

Consider that Middle East is historically a critical area, in this region the number of cyber threats is very high due to the persistent action of foreign state-sponsored hackers and cyber criminals. Typically APTs use malware-based attacks for this reason root cause in this area is malware.

The study states:

"As the findings reveal, the consolidated average per capita cost of data breach (compiled for ten countries and converted to US dollars) differs widely among the countries. Many of these cost differences can be attributed to the types of attacks and threats organizations face as well as the data protection regulations and laws in their respective countries."

That is an interesting observation, @securityaffairs. Do you have any thoughts on why that might be?

interesting note
The report is very interesting, data breach increase is an alarming phenomenon as evidenced also by the Verizon report issued weeks ago.

Within the huge amount of information present in the report me me highlight the interesting analysis conducted on the links between countries and root causes of the of data breaches,  for example countries in Germany and in the Middle East had more data breaches caused by malicious or criminal attacks, meanwhile India had the most data breaches caused by a system glitch.
