IBM Security Services has released its 201
Over 62 percent of incidents targeted just three industries
From the report:
"The data for 2014 shows a marked departure from the trends reported for both 2012 and 2013. While the finance and insurance category remains in its top spot as the most targeted industry, the information and communications category took over second place from manufacturing. And although retail held onto fourth place in the rankings, that industry experienced 3.2 percent more incidents in 2014 than it did in the previous year (see Figure 2). That represents the largest percentage change among the four industries remaining from the previous year’s top five. As noted earlier, 2014 saw the compromise of a significant number of retail records. "

Martin Borrett (IBM), Marinus Kuivenhoven (Sogeti), and Erik van Ommeren (Sogeti), have just published a new ebook on cybersecurity which will be interesting reading for any IT security specialist who knows how complex security in large organizations can be. More to the point, it's a great book for sharing with management and executives to help them see the light that cyber security is not just a technology issue, but a fundamental business risk.
This book doesn't simply rehash the tried and true risk management methods. It takes a look and the types of issues companies are facing today in a topical, relevant way.

The 2013 IBM Cyber Security Intelligence Index (download it) is an excellent tool that details the global threat landscape (and complements the IBM X-Force Report). The Index encompasses 3,700 clients in 130 countries and will be updated on a regular basis so it will continue to be a valuable tool that provides insights into the reach of cybersecurity attacks (thanks to IBM Managed Security Services), details on attack rates and incidents by category, and knowledge on which industries experience the most (and least) attacks.
The following infographic colorfully illustrates just some of the attack statistics you'll find collected and analyzed in the report -- some of the findings are surprising:

About the report
To understand how cybersecurity academic programs, throughout the world, are evolving-- and in the process identify both challenges and emerging leading practices -- IBM interviewed faculty members and department heads from 15 programs in six different countries. Study participants were selected from over 200 programs followed by the IBM Cyber Security Innovation initiative. To fairly represent a diversity of perspectives, we selected programs from various geographies with varying levels of maturity.
