As with spear phishing attacks, large organizations were more likely to be targeted. Among respondents from organizations with 1,000 or more email users, 63 percent (64 percent RSA, 57 percent Infosecurity) said that their organization had been the target of some other form of targeted attack and/or APT.

Among smaller organizations (those with less than 1,000 email users), 45 percent reported being the target of some other form of targeted attack and/or APT.

During the RSA Conference 2013 and Infosecurity Europe 2013 conferences, Proofpoint surveyed a total of 620 professionals with C-level, IT, security and risk/compliance titles (505 of these at the RSA Conference, 115 at Infosecurity Europe) that visited Proofpoint’s conference booth. Using a Web-based survey, respondents were asked about a variety of concerns around spear phishing, advanced targeted attacks and data breaches. Both surveys asked the same questions. This slideshow features the key findings.
