SAN FRANCISCO – Unauthorized access to proprietary information, including identity theft, has passed denial of service in second place on the list of causes of computer crime losses, according to the 2005 CSI/FBI Computer Crime and Security Survey. Still atop the list? Cleaning up after virus attacks, according to the 10th annual report from the Computer Security Institute and the FBI’s Computer Intrusion Squad in San Francisco. The widely circulated report also found that financial institutions spent the least per employee on IT security, about $15, while state governments spent the most, about $400 in 2005. The report, based on responses from 700 security practitioners at private and public organizations across the country, found $141.5 million in losses from computer crime in 2005 reported by 494 respondents, compared with $201.8 million from 530 respondents in 2004. The complete 2005 CSI/FBI Computer Crime and Security Survey can be downloaded from the CSI’s Web site at www.gocsi.com.
