Since 2005, the Ponemon Institute has been conducting the Cost of Data Breach Survey — the gold-standard benchmark in data breach research. Using the Data Breach Risk Calculator, this survey examines the costs incurred by organizations after experiencing genuine data loss incidents.
IBM is proud to sponsor the ninth annual survey, which incorporates results from 250 organizations across 11 countries — specifically Australia, Brazil, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, the UK, the US, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
