Cybersecurity is a rapidly evolving and changing landscape that is difficult for anyone to keep up with… Let alone the already over-stretched justice professional.
The numbers involved in the all-too-frequent announcements about hacking and breaches are just staggering.
Consider this: The cost of cybercrime worldwide will reach $2T by 2019, a massive increase from 2015’s $500B costs.
However, experts feel this might be just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to calculating the real costs of cybercrime. Experts from the World Economic Forum say that a significant portion of cybercrime goes undetected, particularly in the case of industrial espionage and proprietary secrets.
Add to this, the more than 29 million records that were records stolen or exposed in 858 publicized breaches from across all industry sectors in 2016 – a 38% increase in cybersecurity incidents according to IDG. Each breach cost on average more than $7M in the US – or $220 per record.
While the statistics on cybercrime are mindboggling, there are very real ways law enforcement and justice professionals can arm themselves to fight the very real war on cybercrime. And the first step is to become informed.
