According to an IBM Security and Ponemon Institute Report, organizations that have implemented security AI and automation, experience breaches that are USD 3.05 million less expensive on average than those at organizations without such measures. This represents a difference of 65.2%, with an average cost of USD 3.15 million for fully deployed systems versus USD 6.20 million for those without.
The cost savings resulting from the implementation of security AI and automation were found to be the largest in the study. Additionally, organizations with fully deployed security AI and automation identified and contained breaches on average 74 days faster than those without, with a breach lifecycle of 249 days compared to 323 days. The use of security AI and automation has increased by almost 20% in two years, from 59% in 2020 to 70% in 2022.
Moreover, organizations that do not implement zero trust account for 59% and incur an average of USD 1 million higher breach costs than those that do implement it. The percentage of critical infrastructure organizations not deploying zero trust is even higher at 79%. On average, these organizations experienced breach costs of USD 5.40 million, which is more than USD 1 million higher than the global average.
Data breaches, malicious activities resulting in a multibillion-dollar range of annual losses, involve incidents that derive from unauthorized access and subsequent compromise to the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of sensitive data.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) - Cybersecurity Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) defines cybersecurity as "the art of protecting networks, devices, and data from unauthorized access or criminal use and the practice of ensuring confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information."
