Recent 10-Ks mentioning “cyber” incidents

I’m on record as predicting greater disclosure by firms of actual hacking attempts (irrespective of materiality or “success”) in SEC-mandated disclosure filings.

Here’s an undoubtedly very incomplete list of recent such disclosures I put together last night. Many of these lack real details (they are what one colleague calls “non-disclosure disclosures”). Uncharacteristically, I take a somewhat less pessimistic view, and think things are moving in a positive direction. What we have is not what we will have, and it’s better than what we used to have (which was zero).

Anyway, here’s my little list.
