The international technology company Cisco Systems released the report. It says businesses are trying to prevent cyber-security breaks (防止网络安全中断) using old technology and policies.
However, the report also says the increased threat is creating many new jobs for those able to help defend computer systems.
The report describes major mistakes businesses have made in trying to stop attacks. It said there was a 10 percent recent drop in updates to security measures among businesses.
Cisco examined 115,000 devices. It said 92 percent of them had security weaknesses (安全漏洞) in their software.
Jason Brvenik is a top Cisco engineer. He said that computer criminals will attack any system, whether it is owned by a company or an individual. He said criminals will work together to target a computer system (攻击计算机系统) to try to steal information.
Brvenik said companies are beginning to use defensive measures (防御措施) that watch over their computer systems continuously. He said that helps them know if they are being attacked and to quickly answer such attacks. He said many companies currently do not discover attacks until 100 or more days have passed. He said new programs are able to identify attacks within hours.
Cisco says it is able to identify attacks on its systems within about 17 hours.
The fight against computer criminals is creating many jobs.
