Ponemon Institute is pleased to announce the release of Flipping the Economics of Attacks, sponsored by Palo Alto Networks. In this study, we look at the relationships between the time spent and compensation of today’s adversaries and how organizations can thwart attacks. As revealed in this research, while some attackers may be motivated by non-pecuniary reasons, such as those that are geopolitical or reputational, an average of 69 percent of respondents say they are in it for the money.


Security of Cloud Computing Users 2013 Study

March 5, 2013, 9:00 am


Today we are releasing a very interesting follow up study on how organizations are improving--or not--their cloud security practices. The Security of Cloud Computing Users study shows that when it comes to cloud computing the glass may be half full or half empty because only half or less of respondents have positive perceptions about how their organizations are adopting cloud security best practices and creating confidence in cloud services used within their organization. A significant finding is that only 50 percent of respondents are engaging their security team (always or most of the time) in determining the use of cloud services. We hope you will read the complete report to learn about changes in cloud computing security. Access the full Ponemon Research: 2013 Security of Cloud Computing Users Study
