Cybercrime cost statistics

How the World was Hacked

Cybercrime is one of the fastest growing threats today, resulting in staggering costs to businesses worldwide. We’ve assembled some key cybercrime statics into the infographic below. Here are a few highlights from what we found:

Cybercrime is at a record high
