The ninth annual Cost of Cybercrime Study released by Accenture and the Ponemon Institute found that cybercrime is increasing, taking longer to resolve, and is more expensive for organizations, ZDNet reports. Surveying 2,647 senior leaders across 11 countries and 16 industries, the report found the average cost of cybercrime rose $1.4 million to reach $13 million, and the average number of breaches rose from 130 to 145. The report also found that data is not the only target of cybercrime. Instead, core systems are being targeted in an emerging trend to disrupt and destroy, and the report notes that attacking data integrity will be the next frontier of cyber threats.
