IBM sponsored the and Ponemon Institute examined the actual costs of data breaches at 61 US companies and drew on the results of more than 500 interviews to reveal the true costs of data breaches today, from detection and escalation to customer churn. Read the analyst research to find out the average number of breached records per company, the real reasons most data breaches occur, the capital outlays that a breach requires, and the rate at which customers abandon companies after a breach occurs.
The security threat landscape is rapidly evolving: from risks with the proliferation of mobile devices to the increased sophistication of organized cyber criminals and geopolitical threats. Healthcare has a significant burden with the dubious distinction of having the highest per record data breach cost among all regulated industries.

Shadow IT, mobile computing, consumer IT, and cloud computing are all transforming enterprise IT. Workers using unsecured networks and devices without encryption are also a concern, as data breaches cost organizations millions of dollars in fines, data loss, investigations, and customer backlash.
