CSI Computer Crime & Security 2008
|April 13 2009|
For several years, this survey—perhaps the most widely quoted set of statistics in the industry—showed a steady drop in average estimated losses due to cybercrime. It seemed counterintuitive to some experts, accustomed to seeing the worst of the crime that’s out there.

This year the average losses are back down again. And that’s puzzling, honestly. There seems little question that several sweeping changes in the overall state of IT practices—coupled with equally broad changes in the habits of the criminal world—are making significant, hard-hitting attacks easier and more lucrative for their perpetrators.
What these results suggest, though, is that on most days at most organizations, the attacks are less imaginative than what’s currently theoretically possible.
Which, for the moment, is good news.
