Based on current research data there is a substantial cost to each data breach for the organization. This is never trivial or straight forward. However, there are some baselines we can use to make a guess at an estimate(*) of the expected cost. We use current research by IBM as baseline and add our own extrapolation. You can play with the sliders below the basic breach data to adjust for your current situation. Don’t forget to scroll down to see all sliders.
We also make an estimate as to the potential savings if you were to use tools to mitigate and manage the breach. Our assumptions are based on similar logic and influenced by the sliders.
