Friday, December 04, 2009

The 2009 CSI Computer Crime and Security survey identified a number of shifts in significant cybersecurity threats this year. Malware infections jumped to 64% from 50%, reversing a dip in the number of companies experiencing malware infections that started in 2005. That year, the figure was 74%.

Other significant changes were an almost doubling in the percentage of companies that experienced password sniffing attacks, from 9% last year to 17% this year. And the percentage of respondents reporting financial fraud increased from 12% last year to one in five companies in 2009.
