Best Data Security Solution


Increasingly stringent data privacy regulations along with a generally lower tolerance for data mishandling, are making companies even more concerned about improving their data security postures and thwarting cyber risk.

According to IBM’s “2018 Cost of a Data Breach Study,” conducted by Ponemon, data breaches are becoming more costly to companies, and are resulting in more data being lost or stolen. The study found that the average total cost of a data breach rose to $3.86 million, from $3.62 million, representing a rise of 6.4% over the previous year. In addition, the average cost for each lost record rose from $141 to $148, an increase of 4.8%.

The average size of a data breach had also increased by 2.2%, according to the research. The IBM survey also identified the relationship between the speed of identifying a breach and the cost of the breach. The mean time to identify a breach was 197 days, and the mean time to contain a breach was 69 days. Companies that contained a breach in 30 days or less, saved more than $1 million compared to those that required 30 days or more to resolve it.
