Lunch & Learn Agenda presented by ICE Consulting and Securonix. Reasons to attend? Consider these sobering facts on Cybersecurity incidents:

Since 2020, there has been over a five-fold increase in data breaches. This unprecedented spike has been so severe security experts have classified this activity as a “Cyber Pandemic.” The 2021 Annual Cost of a Data Breach Report published by the Ponemon Institute and IBM Security released these alarming statistics:

Data breach costs rose from $3.86 million to $4.24 million, the highest average total cost in the history of this report.
The average cost of a data breach for organizations with less than 500 employees was 2.94 million.
Customer personally identifiable information (PII) was the most common type of record lost, included in 44% of breaches and was the costliest record type, at $180 per lost or stolen record.
The Healthcare and Pharmaceutical Industries, which the report categorized both the biotech and life science sectors under, had the highest average total cost of a data breach experienced by any industry (Healthcare ranked #1, and Pharmaceutical #3).
