What’s the TRUE Cost of a Data Breach?

July 25, 2018 from 03:00 PM – 04:00 PM UTC

As the volume of cyberattacks increases, so does the cost of the average data breach on a global level. In 2017, nearly 3 billion records were leaked in publicly disclosed incidents, and the associated costs rose by over 6 percent.

To discover the true cost of a data breach, the Ponemon Institute interviewed nearly 500 companies in 15 markets that experienced a breach in 2017, uncovered hidden costs associated with data breaches, and examined the nuance that influenced the cost by both market and industry.

Join Larry Ponemon of the Ponemon Institute and Megan Powell from IBM as they discuss the key findings from the IBM-sponsored study. You can expect to learn:

  • Why reported loss due to a breach may be lower than actual cost;
  • What factors mitigated and exacerbated cost;
  • Which industries saw a large cost increase while some stayed the same year over year; and
  • What factors are on the horizon that may be more influential in the coming years.

We look forward to sharing our findings with you!
