Lessons Learned from 2022's Scariest Cyber Breaches


2022 was a record-breaking year for cybercrime with the average cost of a cyber breach reaching a high of $4.35 million. As the costs of breaches continue to rise, so too does the number of organizations who are experiencing breaches, with 83% of companies reporting that they’ve suffered more than one breach in their lifetime (according to the 2022 IBM Cost of a Data Breach Report).
