The cybersecurity industry is rapidly growing every day. Although more resources are being deployed to counter cyber attacks, the nature of the industry still has a long way to go before we can, as a whole, catch up with these threats. It’s important for us to define what the current information security and cybersecurity industry looks like with these alarming 15 Cyber Security Facts and Stats.
 

1. 95% of breached records came from only three industries in 2016

Government, retail, and technology. The reason isn’t necessarily because those industries are less diligent in their protection of customer records. They’re just very popular targets because of the high level of personal identifying information contained in their records.

 

2. There is a hacker attack every 39 seconds

A Clark School study at the University of Maryland is one of the first to quantify the near-constant rate of hacker attacks of computers with Internet access— every 39 seconds on average, affecting one in three Americans every year —and the non-secure usernames and passwords we use that give attackers more chance of success.

 

3. 43% of cyber attacks target small business

64% of companies have experienced web-based attacks.  62% experienced phishing & social engineering attacks. 59% of companies experienced malicious code and botnets and 51% experienced denial of service attacks.

 

4. The average cost of a data breach in 2020 will exceed $150 million

As more business infrastructure gets connected, Juniper Research data suggests that cybercrime will cost businesses over $2 trillion total in 2019.

 

5. In 2018 hackers stole half a billion personal records

This was a 126% jump from 2017. Since 2013 there are approximately 3,809,448 records stolen from breaches every day.. 158,727 per hour, 2,645 per minute and 44 every second of every day reports Cybersecurity Ventures.

 

6. Over 75% of healthcare industry has been infected with malware over last year

The study examined 700 healthcare organizations including medical treatment facilities, health insurance agencies and healthcare manufacturing companies.

 

7. Large-scale DDoS attacks increase in size by 500%

According to the Q2 2018 Threat ReportNexusguard’s quarterly report, the average distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack grew to more than 26Gbps, increasing in size by 500%.

 

8. Approximately $6 trillion is expected to be spent globally on cybersecurity by 2021

Organizations need to make a fundamental change in their approach to cybersecurity and reprioritize budgets to align with this newly defined reality of our modern society.

 

9. By 2020 there will be roughly 200 billion connected devices

The risk is real with IoT and its growing. According to figures compiled within a recent Symantec Internet Security Threat Report, there are 25 connected devices per 100 inhabitants in the US.

 

10. Unfilled cybersecurity jobs worldwide will reach 3.5 million by 2021

More than 300,000 cybersecurity jobs in the U.S. are unfilled, and postings are up 74% over the past five years.

 

11. 95% of cybersecurity breaches are due to human error

Cyber-criminals and hackers will infiltrate your company through your weakest link, which is almost never in the IT department.

 

12. More than 77% of organizations do not have a Cyber Security Incident Response plan

What’s worse? An estimated 54% of companies say they have experienced one or more attacks in the last 12 months.

 

13. Most companies take nearly 6 months to detect a data breach, even major ones

Equifax, Capital One, and Facebook just to name a few. Information such as passwords, credit card details, and social security numbers may already be compromised by the time you’re notified.

 

14. 46% of all Bitcoin transactions involve illegal online activity

Cryptocurrency is becoming one of the largest unregulated markets in the world. A recent study shows that around $76 billion in cryptocurrency is used in criminal activity every year.

 

15. Total cost for cybercrime committed globally has added up to over $1 trillion dollars in  2018

Don’t think that all that money comes from hackers targeting corporations, banks or wealthy celebrities. Individual users like you and me are also targets. As long as you’re connected to the Internet, you can become a victim of cyber attacks.

 

What does it all mean?

Ginni Rometty, IBM’s chairman, president and CEO, said: “Cybercrime is the greatest threat to every company in the world.” And she was right. During the next five years, cybercrime might become the greatest threat to every person, place and thing in the world. With evolving technology comes evolving hackers, and we are behind in security.

 
Understanding the cyber terminology, threats and opportunities is critical for every person in every business across all industries. By providing advanced cyber training and education solutions in all departments of your business, from marketing and sales to IT and InfoSec, you are investing in your company’s protection against cyber threats.

 Abadata Simplifies & Streamlines Technology To Serve Seniors
 
 Leading Unified Communications Provider Brings Enterprise Level Technology to Senior Living Communities to Improve Lives
 

 Michigan – August 28 , 2017 - Abadata a leader in unified communications, announced today that the company will now offer a turn-key; television, internet, nurse call, business and residential phone service in a managed solution to the senior living communities across the nation. Abadata is an elite provider of managed IT services that is capable of delivering complex, high-end, enterprise-level IT solutions for Fortune 500 companies as well as streamlined, simplified IT solutions that are as user-friendly as one would expect to see in senior living communities. To make things even easier, Abadata differentiates itself from the competition with an on-site concierge employee, ensuring that every single piece of technology is always functioning at peak levels for residents. According to the Administration on Aging, “The older population—persons 65 years or older—numbered 46.2 million in 2014. They represented 14.5% of the U.S. population, about one in every seven Americans.” Abadata has found new ways to innovate by making some of their products and services simpler and easier-to-use than ever before, while simultaneously providing a client experience that is incredibly personal, which is especially important in these environments.


It’s pivotal to keep our seniors connected, especially in senior living communities. Whether that connection comes from a grandmother smiling as she sees her grandson’s pictures on social media, a nurse who needs to lookup a medication to make sure it's the right fit for a patient or a grandfather who’s on a group call with all his family members singing him happy birthday. Their job is to make sure that the “Happy Birthday” phone call comes through clearly so that grandpa can hear everyone’s voice, the grandmother has a device that automatically logs her into Facebook so she doesn’t have to be frustrated trying to remember to her password and that the nurse has easy access to their database of medical information to go above and beyond to ensure patient safety.


“It doesn't matter whether you’re having a videoconference with high-powered executives or if you’re a senior who has been looking forward to an evening conversation with one of your grandkids. Technology exists to bring people together and it’s our job to make sure it performs,” stated Dave Wineman, President at Abadata. “That’s why we’re so happy to be able to offer our on-site technology concierge to handle any problem that comes up on-the-spot so residents can focus on enjoying their stay instead of how to hook up their new technology. We consider it a privilege to serve this section of the community who needs their technology to be as straightforward as possible, which has coincidentally provided us with insights that we will undoubtedly use to improve the efficiencies of our offerings to SMB (small to mid-sized business) clients, as well.”


As a Member of Technology Assurance Group (TAG), an international association of privately owned managed IT companies, who collectively represent close to $350M in products and services, Abadata now has the ability to serve this section of the population on a national basis. In other words, through the cooperative participation of companies all across the nation, they can deploy solutions across several different marketplaces and locations, reducing cost and increasing happiness across the board.


Abadata has also found that technology can not only foster connection, but perhaps suggests the possibility for better health, as well. According to Lisa Berkman, chair of the Department of Society, Human Development and Health, “Social participation and integration have profound effects on health and well-being of people during their lifetimes. We know from previous studies that people with many social ties have lower mortality rates. We now have mounting evidence that strong social networks can help to prevent declines in memory. As our society ages and has more and more older
people, it will be important to promote their engagement in social and community life to maintain their well-being.”Abadata has pledged to work in
whatever ways it can to serve this generation and if technology can strengthen these social ties, even in the slightest bit, we consider that to be quite a noble service to the world.
