News outlets are reporting cyber attacks more frequently and highlighting the fact that retail, health care and governments are not the only industries vulnerable to data breaches.

Attacks against the manufacturing industry continue to rise. The Verizon 2015 Data Breach Investigations Report shows that the contributors to the report reviewed 525 separate incidents within the manufacturing industry segment, up from 251 in 2014. Of these incidents, more than 60 percent were attributed to some form of cyber-espionage. In fact, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) estimates that hundreds of billions of dollars of U.S.-based intellectual property is leaving the U.S. through computer-based attacks each year.[/fusion_text][fusion_imageframe image_id=”69618″ style_type=”none” stylecolor=”” hover_type=”none” bordersize=”0px” bordercolor=”” borderradius=”0″ align=”none” lightbox=”no” gallery_id=”” lightbox_image=”” alt=”” link=”” linktarget=”_self” hide_on_mobile=”no” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”fade” animation_direction=”up” animation_speed=”0.9″ animation_offset=””]https://www.sikich.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/MFG_report_2016_figure_2_impact_drivers.jpg[/fusion_imageframe][fusion_separator style_type=”none” top_margin=”30px” bottom_margin=”” sep_color=”” border_size=”” icon=”” icon_circle=”” icon_circle_color=”” width=”” alignment=”center” class=”” id=”” /][fusion_title size=”2″ content_align=”center” style_type=”none” sep_color=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” class=”” id=””]Other Key Findings in the Report[/fusion_title][/fusion_builder_column][fusion_builder_column type=”1_3″ layout=”1_3″ last=”yes” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”#efefef” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” hover_type=”none” link=”” border_position=”all” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” padding_top=”” padding_right=”” padding_bottom=”” padding_left=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”down” animation_speed=”0.1″ animation_offset=”” class=”” id=”sticky” min_height=””][fusion_separator style_type=”none” top_margin=”” bottom_margin=”20px” sep_color=”” border_size=”” icon=”” icon_circle=”” icon_circle_color=”” width=”” alignment=”center” class=”” id=”” /][fusion_text]
