"During this track session I will discuss how systemic enterprise failures in key and certificate management create vulnerabilities that cybercriminals are exploiting to breach corporate and government networks, steal data and disrupt critical business operations," said Larry Ponemon, chairman and founder of Ponemon Institute Research. "I will present the findings from the 2013 Cost of Failed Trust report, including the research methodology, which quantifies for the first time the cost of trust exploits.
"I'll share some of the expected and startling findings, including the fact that more than half of the companies surveyed do not know how many keys and certificates they have, that every company had experienced an attack on trust due to failed key and certificate management, and that trust attacks are projected to cost organizations an average of $35 million over 24 months, with a maximum cost exposure of $398 million per organization."
