From the Paper:

"Everyday companies are subject to network attacks. It is not uncommon for a company to be the target of hundreds, even thousands of attacks a day. The combination of computer hackers, cyber terrorism threats, and security vulnerabilities in existing technology often disrupt business resulting in loss and theft of private or intellectual data. The number of new vulnerabilities is constantly increasing, and current data indicates that approximately 70 discoveries are being reported every week."
