Article on the latest CSI/FBI study.

The study does not use a consistent loss model, thus the loss numbers over time are meaningless. I’m all for numbers, but we need an accurate model that won’t just reflect who wants more money this year for more tools/people. Just estimating a lump sum for losses is a load of crap.

I’ve talked about similar problems with bad math here and here.

The trend is meaningless without more rigor in the study and some real loss models.
