In 2005, the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) surveyed 36,000 businesses about cybercrime. The authors contrast past cybersecurity data collection efforts with the BJS study. Then, based on a framework for evaluating the applicability of data to models and decision-making, they discuss data collection and reporting common to cybercrime studies. Finally, they assess the potential for any data collection effort to fulfill multiple security models' data needs.
