Compromised credentials is the costliest initial attack vector


The Cost of a Data Breach Report, with independent research from the Ponemon Institute and sponsored by IBM Security, identifies the costs and financial consequences of data breaches.​

  • Independent, quantitative analysis of 537 recent breaches

  • Benchmarks for 17 geographies and 17 industries

  • Exceptional insights into security best practices

The proof points and resources from this year’s report can help you effectively prepare, prevent, and respond to a data breach.

Report Highlights

  • Security automation effectiveness grew, $3.81 million savings with security automation fully deployed vs. no security automation

  • Remote working increased the average cost of breach, $1.07 million cost difference where remote work was a factor in causing the breach

  • Mega breaches cost mega millions, 100x cost multiplier of mega-breach cost-increasing costs vs. the average data breach

What can you do to mitigate the risks?

  • Password is not enough. Implement Multi-Factor Authentication and Risk-Based Authorization to your applications and systems.

  • Protect the keys to your kingdom. Control the use and distribution of powerful privileged accounts such as root and Administrator.

  • Right Provisioning. Assign least privilege to users and take them away immediately when no longer required.
