- [David] Hello, and welcome. My name is David Kruger, and this is part of our cybersecurity awareness series. I am vice president and a co-founder at Absio corporation, a company that provides a new approach to information security, the ability to secure and control your data everywhere, all the time. I have more than 35 years of experience in consulting, project management, business development, and customer support. I am on the operations board of the National Cyber Exchange, which is an organization of the National Cybersecurity Center in Colorado Springs.
I have published and been a contributing author of numerous white papers and articles about safety and cybersecurity. Today, I'm excited to share some ideas with you and your organization on digital security, privacy, and intellectual property protection. Private sector businesses, government agencies, and private citizens are losing the war to keep their digital data from being stolen. Every day brings reports of new data breaches, identity theft, intellectual property loss, military and diplomatic secrets divulged, financial fraud, or humiliating disclosures made by some hactivist collective.
Losses are projected to cost the world economy an estimated half a trillion dollars in 2016, and they are expected to top two trillion dollars by 2019. If that's accurate, based on 2014 numbers, US losses will exceed two percent of the total US GDP by 2019. By any measure, this problem has reached crisis proportions.
