(click to download study) Symantec Corporation and Ponemon Institute are pleased to present 2011 Cost of Data Breach Study: United States, our seventh annual benchmark study concerning the cost of data breach incidents for U.S.- based companies. While Ponemon Institute research indicates that data breaches continue to have serious financial consequences for organizations, there is evidence that organizations are becoming better at managing the costs incurred to respond and resolve a data breach incident. In this year’s study, the average per capita cost of data breach has declined from $214 to $194.
