Data breaches and online compromises have become common in enterprises of all types and sizes. Drawing from Dark Reading’s 2017 Strategic Security Survey, which polled 330 IT and security professionals, this report offers insight into the prevalence of attacks and breaches over the past year, as well as their causes and effects on IT security planning for the future.

Here are some insights from the report:
• One in four organizations suffered significant or minor direct financial losses due to an attack or breach in the past 12 months.
• Approximately 65% of organizations fell victim to malware-related breaches, while 55% experienced phishing-initiated breaches.
• Nearly one in five organizations suffered from intellectual property theft or compromise of information confidentiality in the past year.
• Among those who were hit by directly targeted breaches, 20% bore costs in excess of $1 million.
• Only 54% of organizations feel well-prepared to respond to a major breach in the coming year.
• Approximately 23% of organizations were struck by ransomware attacks; 9% paid the ransom.
