New FBI Computer Crime Survey
by HNS Staff - Thursday, 19 January 2006.
Want insight into the cyber attacks that U.S. organizations are facing, what defenses they're using against these assaults, and the implications for industry and government?

You'll be interested in reading the new 2005 FBI Computer Crime Survey (PDF), their largest survey on these issues to date.

The survey — developed and analyzed with the help of leading public and private authorities on cyber security — is based on responses from a cross-section of more than 2,000 public and private organizations in four states.

Some of the key findings:
  • Frequency of attacks
  • Types of attacks
  • Financial impact
  • Sources of the attacks
  • Defenses
  • Reporting.
Bruce Verduyn—a special agent in Houston's Cyber Squad, which administered the survey-said that this new survey differs from the annual CSI/FBI Computer Crime and Security Survey conducted by the Computer Security Institute and the FBI. "We surveyed about three times as many organizations and focused more on new technologies, where attacks originated, and how organizations responded," he said.
