Cybersecurity Ventures released a new report that claims cybercrime is going to cost the world $8 trillion in 2023. If it were measured as a country, then cybercrime would be the world’s third largest economy after the U.S. and China.
The number sounds outlandish, but they stated: “We expect global cybercrime damage costs to grow by 15 percent per year over the next three years, reaching $10.5 trillion USD annually by 2025, up from $3 trillion USD in 2015.
“Cybercrime costs include damage and destruction of data, stolen money, lost productivity, theft of intellectual property, theft of personal and financial data, embezzlement, fraud, post-attack disruption to the normal course of business, forensic investigation, restoration and deletion of hacked data and systems, and reputational harm.”
The 2022 Official Cybercrime Report published by Cybersecurity Ventures and sponsored by eSentire, provides cyber economic facts, figures, predictions and statistics which convey the magnitude of the cyber threat we are up against, and market data to help understand what can be done about it.
