"Cybercrime costs include damage and destruction of data, stolen money, lost productivity, theft of intellectual property, theft of personal and financial data, embezzlement, fraud, post-attack disruption, forensic investigation, restoration and deletion of hacked data and systems, and reputational harm." – Cybersecurity Ventures.
