Hikvision Covers Report that Finds Cybercrime Caused by Small Threat Group
A new Accenture survey says cybercrime could cost companies up to $5.2 trillion in expenses and lost revenue in the next five years adding to cybersecurity concerns, according to an article in Security magazine.
Led by global consulting firm, Accenture, the report “Securing the Digital Economy: Reinventing the Internet for Trust,” covers analysis from the firm’s research with 30 leading technologists, plus fieldwork with 1,700 C-level executives.
“The Internet wasn’t built with today’s level of complexity and connectivity in mind, which is why it takes just one click—whether inside or outside the company walls—to fall prey to a devastating cyberattack. No organization can tackle the challenges posed by cyber threats on its own; it’s a global challenge that needs a global response and collaboration is key,” said Kelly Bissell, senior managing director of Accenture Security, in the article.
Key findings from the report including the following:
- 59 percent of respondents stated that Internet cyber instability is growing.
- 75 percent of those surveyed believe that cybersecurity challenges require a group effort to succeed.
- 56 percent would welcome heightened business regulations from a governing body.
