Global Significance

Industry analysts have estimated that cybercrime costs more than $10 trillion to society, with billions of dollars being stolen from small, medium, and large-sized enterprises and identities of millions of people compromised. The complexity is increasing not only because more people are connected to the Internet, but also because hackers have developed "backdoor" ways to attack more complex systems.

As Floridians and statewide organizations conduct more of their day-to-day business online, transmitting or storing confidential or sensitive information electronically, the need for network and information security has increased exponentially.
