What the study is about
IBM is proud to sponsor the 12th annual Cost of Data Breach Study, the industry’s gold-standard benchmark research, independently conducted by Ponemon Institute.
This year’s study found the average consolidated total cost of a data breach decreased from $2.64 million in 2016 to $2.51 million in 2017. The study also reports that data breaches cost companies an average of $139 per compromised record.
Over a 10-month period, Ponemon Institute researchers interviewed IT, compliance and information security practitioners in 13 countries: United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, France, Brazil, Japan, Italy, India, the Arabian region (a consolidation of organisations in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia), Canada and South Africa. This year, four ASEAN countries: Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines and Malaysia have also been added. To date, 174 Australian companies have participated in the study over the past eight years.
