Cybersecurity is a rising concern globally — for individuals, businesses and nations. Unfortunately, many either don't take the threat seriously or aren't doing enough to protect themselves from cybercrime.

A Ponemon Institute survey of 583 U.S. companies found 90% had been hacked in the past 12 months. Of those companies, most admitted their networks had been breached more than once, and more than half expressed little to no confidence that they could ward off such attacks in the future.

Check out the infographic below to learn more about the state of cybersecurity and how to protect your online privacy.
