Though companies are increasing their spending on cybersecurity, not all are likely to reach out to law enforcement when there is a breach. That's according to a survey conducted by the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) and attorneys who practice in the area of cyber threats.

Philip N. Yannella, partner in the Philadelphia office of Ballard Spahr LLP who helped draft the report, told Bloomberg BNA by e-mail Dec. 9 that retailers may appear more willing to report collaborating with law enforcement because the industry has been most heavily targeted by hackers.
