Cyber crimes cost businesses $1 trillion in 2008

In a recent interview in which the Director of National Intelligence stated that cyberterrorism is a huge threat to our security in the United States, he also said that businesses lost an estimated $1 trillion to cyber crimes in 2008. I can only imagine that that number increased in 2009 and 2010 and will continue to increase. I’ll discuss this more in a post later but just wanted to throw that out there in case it surprised anyone else as much as it did me!
