Another interesting takeaway from the report is the fact that targeted attacks are growing. Symantec notes that the number of daily targeted attacks increased from 77 per day to 82 per day by the end of 2011. More than 50 percent of such attacks target organizations with fewer than 2,500 employees, and almost 18 percent target companies with fewer than 250 employees. When it comes to the actual targets, 58 percent of attacks focused on employees in roles such as human resources, public relations, and sales.
