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.

We are pleased to present the findings of The Rise of Ransomware, sponsored by Carbonite, a
report on how organizations are preparing for and dealing with ransomware infections. As of
September 2016, the Justice Department reported more than 4,000 ransomware attacks daily
since January 1, 2016. This is a 300-percent increase over the approximately 1,000 attacks per
day seen in 2015.

The complete study is available for download.
