Cyber Security Economic Issues



The emerging field of cybersecurity economics could benefit from better data, better under- standing, and better methods for using resources wisely, not only to protect critical products and services but also to provide assurances that software will work as expected. This research brief presents findings that address these key cybersecurity concerns, perceptions of the importance of cybersecurity, and considerations for cybersecurity invest- ment decisions. In particular, it suggests that companies, the government, and other organizations can help improve our under- standing of cybersecurity economics by moni- toring cybersecurity incidents and responses, soliciting and using standard terminology and measures, and sharing data whenever possible.
