FACTS AND FIGURES

  • The average cost of a breach for a small or mid-sized business is over $180,000.
  • Legal costs alone (defense and settlements) represent 57% of breach costs. Additional costs include IT services, customer notification, and public relations expenses (Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, 2014).
  • According to the President and CEO of Identity Theft Resources Center (ITRC), “With an average of 15 breaches a week in 2014, consumers need to be made aware of the risk of exposure to personal identifying information in order to understand the threat posed by this growing list of data breach incidents.”
  • In 2014, almost 150 million records were exposed through security breaches, according to Privacy Rights Clearinghouse. Which is an increase of 40% since 2013. In 2013, over 90 million confidential records were exposed through more than 600 reported security breaches, according to ITRC
