The toll of enterprise cybercrime in the U.S.: $11.8 million per year ; 122 attacks per week

Ellen Messmer | Oct. 9, 2013
The most costly cybercrime was related to denial-of-service attacks, malicious code and web-based attacks, the study found.

The number of days needed on average to respond to an attack varied widely. It took on average 65.5 days to resolve attacks that came from "malicious insiders," for instance, but 10.2 days to deal with stolen devices and 6.7 days with "malware."

While the Ponemon report did not go into the same kind of detail as concerns what might happen to companies in other countries, the report did note that the U.S. had the highest costs of cybercrime, noting that other countries (see graphic) such as France, Germany and Japan were far less.
