Some of the key findings are
- Virus attacks continue as the source of the greatest financial losses
- Unauthorized use of computer systems has increased slightly, however the financial losses as a result of it are decreasing
- Web site incidents have increased dramatically
- The percentage of organizations reporting computer intrusions to law enforcement has continued its multi-year decline
Although the results are very interesting, it is important to realize that the survey has been carried out in a strictly US setting. While the survey was sent to a large group of companies, which undoubtedly contain multi-national or global corporations, I wonder of the results would be different in a European context.
