  • Adoption and use of the types of technology and services targeted by cybercrime actors
  • The types of cybersecurity measures businesses deploy
  • How many businesses employ dedicated cyber security staff and the number they employ
  • The breakdown of how the $14 billion invested into cybersecurity staff and solutions was spent
