Data breach costs decline
Tuesday - 3/20/2012, 4:37pm EDT
In 2011, the average cost of a data breach was $5.5 million dollars — a decrease of 24 percent from the previous year. Similarly, the cost per compromised record was $194 dollars per compromised record, CIO.com reports on the study's results.
The decreases are believed to be partly because of companies stepping up their notification and response processes.
The study's authors gathered information nearly 50 U.S. companies across 14 different sectors.
