Study: Early detection of intruders cuts costs by more than half

Companies that use deception technologies for the early detection of cyber attacks can reduce the costs caused by data theft by more than half (51%). This is the key finding of a new study that Attivo Networks conducted with Kevin Fiscus of Deceptive Defense. The report, “Cyber ​​Deception Reduces Breach Costs & Increases SOC Efficiency,” identifies the direct and measurable financial and productivity benefits of deception technologies for organizations of all types and sizes. The research also shows that the average reduction in data breach cost is $ 1.98 million per incident or $ 75.12 per compromised record. These cost reductions are achieved through faster incident detection and effective response, as well as reduced complexity in handling them.
