Cybercrime Down… Or Has The Risk Just Moved?

from the good-signs dept

Over the last year or so, there have been so many stories about cybercrime and data losses by business that you’d be forgiven for thinking that the problem was growing. Instead, however, a new report notes that actual monetary losses appear to be dropping year over year. Of course, they are only looking at business losses — and many of the recent problems have been about exposing consumer info. So, rather than saying this is about companies finally starting to better protect their systems, perhaps it’s just a case where they’ve shifted the risk from the company to customers/members/users.
