90% of Companies Say They've Been Hacked
Jaikumar Vijayan writes on InfoWorld:
If it sometimes appears that just about every company is getting hacked these days, that's because they are.
In a recent survey [.pdf] of 583 U.S companies conducted by Ponemon Research on behalf of Juniper Networks, 90 percent of the respondents said their organizations' computers had been breached at least once by hackers over the past 12 months.
Nearly 60 percent reported two or more breaches over the past year. More than 50 percent said they had little confidence of being able to stave off further attacks over the next 12 months.
Those numbers are significantly higher than findings in similar surveys, and they suggest that a growing number of enterprises are losing the battle to keep malicious intruders out of their networks.
