1 to 10 companies losing over $ 10 millions due to cyberattacks

The results showed that attacks cyber-targeting companies around the world and so an increase in investment (34%) in security is expected next year. About 12% of the companies that participated in research, said they intend to increase them investments their cyberspace by 50%.
