Symantec: Most Companies Victims of Cyber Attack in 2009

Kara Reeder

According to Symantec's latest "State of Enterprise Security" study, 100 percent of the 2,100 businesses surveyed had experienced cyber losses of some type in the past year. Seventy-five percent said they were the target of a cyber attack in the past year, reports eSecurity Planet.


Theft of intellectual property, customer credit card information or other financial information were the top three losses, which cost companies productivity, revenue and loss of customer trust.


The survey shows that enterprises are well aware of growing security threats to their organizations. However, budget realities and staffing problems in the key areas of network security and messaging security have hindered security efforts.
