According to the British insurance company Lloyd’s, cyber attacks cost businesses as much as $400 billion each year, which includes direct damage plus post-attack disruption to the normal course of business. Research firm Cybersecurity Ventures estimates that the global cost of cybercrime will grow from $3 trillion in 2015 to $6 trillion by 2021, which includes damage and destruction of data, stolen money, lost property, intellectual property theft, and other areas. As Ginni Rometty, IBM Corp.’s Chairman, President and CEO recently observed, “Cyber crime is the greatest threat to every profession, every industry, every company in the world.” *
