IBM Managed Security Services continuously monitors billions of events per year, as reported by more than 8,000 client devices in over 100 countries. This report is based on data IBM collected between 1 January 2014 and 31 December 2014 in the course of monitoring client security devices as well as data derived from responding to and performing analysis on cyber attack incidents. Because our client profiles can differ significantly across industries and company size, we have normalized the data for this report to describe an average client organization as having between 1,000 and 5,000 employees, with approximately 500 security devices deployed within its network.
The annual Cyber Security Intelligence Index offers a high-level overview of the major threats to businesses worldwide over the past year. Our goal is to help you better understand the current threat landscape by offering a detailed look at the volume of attacks, the industries most affected, the most prevalent types of attacks and attackers, and the key factors enabling them. We provide insights into where and how successful attacks can impact today’s technology dependent organizations and discuss how the threat landscape is evolving from year to year, as companies work to better detect and insulate themselves from future attacks.
