Default Malware Risks are Growing Exponentially

Malware Risks are Growing Exponentially

A new report from a leading security services provider found that companies are at higher risk of exposure to hacks because of employees that download malware onto their work computers. Here’s a few scary stats for you:

A company in ScanSafe's focus group faced a nearly 500 percent greater risk of exposure to those threats in September than was faced in January of this year, according to ScanSafe's Global Threat Report released on Tuesday. Companies in the energy sector are at greater risk from Web-based malware than other industries, the report concludes. The energy sector, worldwide, faces a 189 percent higher risk of exposure from workers visiting sites with malware on them than other industries, followed by the pharmaceutical and chemicals industry, construction and engineering, and media and publishing.
