Data breaches, malware and related frauds can cost an organization very dearly. The effects of cyber fraud are rather alarming:

It was estimated that cyberattacks amounted to a loss of at least a trillion dollars to the US economy in 2013, up by more than 25% over the previous year. The US continues to be the largest target and sufferer of cyberattacks. It accounts for more than a third of all cyberattacks that happen all around the world, followed by India, which is a distant second, at a ninth of that of the US.

In terms of numbers of cyber attackers, the top cyber attackers are found predominantly in the developed world, with three of the top countries for cyber attackers belonging to the west. Germany is home to over a million cyber attackers, followed closely by the US, which had close to a million attackers in late 2013, followed by Mongolia and France.

A huge variety of losses

In addition to the financial loss that organizations face in the aftermath of a cyberattack, they have to also contend with other losses that are of a grave nature. Organizations in which fraud happens risk their reputation. They go down in the market as being run by incompetent and untrustworthy people at the top. Deloitte lists a number of other losses, both hidden and overt, that cyberattacks cause to organizations. These are some of them:

  • Inability to meet regulatory compliance and having to pay fines levied by regulatory agencies
  • Payment of losses and fees spent on litigation
  • Costs relating to taking measures to improve security
  • Cost of the investigation
  • Loss caused by disruption to business
  • Loss of intellectual property
  • Increased cost of insurance

What can be done about this?

If organizations need to prevent negative scenarios such as these; they have to implement a number of security measures and procedures. These security measures need to be in the form of an Incident Response Program that will allow organizations the ability to respond to such attacks with dexterity, while at the same time making sure that their business operations do not get disrupted.

This calls for establishing Key Performance Indicators (KPI) to help to determine if organizations’ Information Systems Incident Response program meets business objectives and operational metrics for ongoing process improvement.
