Cyber crime: A clear and present danger
Combating the astest growing cyber security threat

Introduction
As used in this document, “Deloitte” means Deloitte & Touche LLP, a subsidiary o Deloitte LLP.Please see www.deloitte.com/us/about or a detailed description o the legal structure o Deloitte LLP and its subsidiaries.
Threats posed to organizations by cyber crimes haveincreased aster than potential victims—or cyber securityproessionals—can cope with them, placing targetedorganizations at signicant risk. This is the key nding oDeloitte ’s review o the results o the 2010 CSOCyberSecurity Watch Survey, sponsored by Deloitte andconducted in collaboration with
CSO Magazine
, the U.S.Secret Service, and the CERT Coordination Center atCarnegie Mellon (see sidebar on page 4).This whitepaper reports several key results o this surveyand Deloitte’s interpretation o key survey results. By itsnature, interpretation goes beyond simple reporting oresults (which is not our goal here) and may promptdisagreement or even controversy. Deloitte believeshowever, that some o the ndings point to signicantincongruities between the views o many surveyrespondents and the current reality o cyber crime. Giventhat the survey respondents include mainly executives andproessionals responsible or the security o theirorganizations’ IT environments, such incongruities areworth examining.Our view is that the growth o the threat o cyber crimehas outpaced that o other cyber security threats. Fromour perspective, the 2010 CSO CyberSecurity WatchSurvey, viewed in the light o our experience, indicates thatcyber crime constitutes a signicantly more common andlarger threat than respondents recognize. Indeed, drivenby the prospect o signicant prots, cyber crimeinnovation and techniques have outpaced traditionalsecurity models and many current signature-baseddetection technologies.Today’s cyber criminals are increasingly adept at gainingundetected access and maintaining a persistent,low-prole, long-term presence in IT environments.Meanwhile, many organizations may be leaving themselvesvulnerable to cyber crime based on a alse sense osecurity, perhaps even complacency, driven by non-agilesecurity tools and processes. Many are ailing to recognizecyber crimes in their IT environments and misallocatinglimited resources to lesser threats. For example, manyorganizations ocus heavily on oiling hackers and blockingpornography while potential—and actual—cyber crimesmay be going undetected and unaddressed. This hasgenerated signicant risk exposure, including exposure tonancial losses, regulatory issues, data breach liabilities,damage to brand, and loss o client and public condence.
