The Symantec report states that consumers globally lost $158 billion to cybercrime in the past year.

"In the U.S. alone, the figure is near $30 billion. Last year, 594 million people worldwide were victims of online crime. Consumers who have been the victim of cybercrime lost an average of 21 hours over the past year dealing with the fallout, and nearly $358 on average per person, enough for a year of home security monitoring.

More than one-third (36%) of people who share passwords in the United States have shared the password to their banking account. Most consumers are failing the most basic requirement of online security.
