IBM Corp. said in a research report that the financial and insurance sectors are those most targeted by cyber attackers, making up nearly 50% of the cases reported in 2014, reports Segs.com.br.
These are followed by manufacturing, which accounted for 21.7%, and information and communications, which accounted for 18.6%.
An information security executive at IBM's Latin American operations said the same sectors were at the top in 2013.
