Re: Downloading the Ponemon report
Hi Marlyn, 

I'm currently working to the analysis of the cost for the data breach that impacted 80% of South Korean ... it could have a social impact of different $ Billions ... and many other incident had similar or greater impact

Re: Downloading the Ponemon report
I totally agree with you, @securityaffairs. These numbers give us a window into the total cost -- and probably not the whole picture. But they the trend will be continue to grow higher over time.

Re: Downloading the Ponemon report
Very interesting ... but I believe that it is just the ti of the iceberg ... a serious evaluation of the cost os a data breach is quite impossible for a multitude of factor that concurs to its qualification. 

Consider that in many cases analytic data are not available ...

the figures provided give us just an excellent view of the current trend ... but I believe that cost is higher

Re: The real cost of security
"it's easier to impose security on a more uniform environment than on a complex, heterogeneous enterprise environment."

I agree with it. Some of these problems are coming from an old system that has been forgotten and not shutdown while everybody is happy on a new environment, this simple old technology would easily bring down whole enterprise network.

Re: Pressure points for change
I agree. At the same time, some companies do not see the pressure of regulations. If you are not in contact with the government, it is less likely you cover the expense of putting proper measures in place coming from regulations.

too much money
It looks like however you look at it recovering from an attack is always costlier than preventing it. What is more scary is that we have been hearing these attacks lately more often than earlier in the past so there is an exponential upward trend. It is time to take put different measure such as identify who is behind and punishing them for what they did.

Re: Pressure points for change
Interesting. It's too bad, though, that it still takes compliance to force their hand. There should be a more strategic view about breach inevitability.
