2005 FBI CSI Report

The Computer Security Institute published their 2005 FBI/CSI Computer Crime and Security Survey (just submit empty form to download).

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.
