Infographic: USA #1 target for cyber attacks

According to an infographic developed by Comparitech, the US is facing startlingly high levels of cyber attack:

  • The US is the most targeted country in the world for web application attack traffic (66%) and cyber espionage (54%)
  • The average cost of cybercrime in the US is $17.36 million, which is significantly more than any other country
  • 21% of all DDoS attacks originate from the US

In addition, the US suffered 47% of the world’s data breaches last year.

While the US is still without a federal cybersecurity law for all states to follow, governments are starting to react by producing and rewriting legislation to add to a growing list of ever-changing cybersecurity regulations. Among this new legislation are a number of requirements for banks and financial institutions proposed by the New York Department of Financial Services (NYDFS).

Boost organizational cybersecurity

As the number of cyber attacks continue to rise, businesses are under increasing pressure to protect their systems from cyber attacks and data misuse. But the challenge of needing to comply with multiple cybersecurity regulations (state, industry specific and international) is considerable. For an organization trading nationally or even globally, the compliance demands are significant.
