The Economics of Cybercrime
"The numbers are in. According to the 4th Annual Cost of Cyber Crime Study, sponsored by HP Enterprise Security, cyber crime is taking an ever-bigger toll on the bottom line. The study examined sixty U.S. organizations across various industries and found that hackers are targeting companies of all sizes. Small organizations had big losses from viruses, worms, trojans, phishing and malware, while the majority of larger organizations' losses came from denial of service, malicious code and web-based attacks."
