Today, hacking is $1T industry -- up from a few billion just three years ago. In 2007, professional hacking represented a multibillion-dollar industry. At present, this same industry posts -- in stolen data, IP and financial gain -- more than one trillion in value. What explains this rapid growth? Industrialization.

The industrialization of hacking coincides with a critical shift in what's considered today's prized commodity: data.
