Breaches Uncontained For 100+ Days Cost 35% More to Fix

December 6, 2017 | Content Aggregator - Single Slide | Threats & Incidents

The costs of remediating a data breach are going down, but the longer the breach takes to contain, the higher the total breach cost. If the time to contain a data breach was fewer than 30 days, the estimated average total cost of the data breach was $2.83 million. If it took more than 100 days to contain the breach, the estimated cost was $3.83 million. Having tools and processes that heighten remediation capabilities, such as a fully functional incident response process, can significantly reduce data breach costs.
