Of all the known cyberattacks that cause a data breach, phishing is the most expensive to remedy. A successful phishing attack most commonly reveals usernames and passwords, which paves the way to the data breach resulting in an average cost of $4.9m for victim organizations worldwide.
The costs remain the highest in the healthcare industry for the 12th year in a row. So far, breach costs in 2022 have increased by nearly $1 million, now totaling over $10 million. The U.S. healthcare industry is the most expensive, with average costs of $9.4 million.
