Data Breach Cost Report

I am looking for a solid data breach cost report or article.  I know the ponomon institute which covers averages, but not the cost itself with all the indirect costs elucidated.  I would love something that covers the last couple of years.  The most specific the information the better.  Any thoughts?

There is a Verizon 2011 Data Breach Investigations Report but it is more of the incident cases contributed from public sector as well, no mentioned of specific cost though. It examined 923 unique cases, spanning more than six years of investigations by Verizon, the U.S. Secret Service and the Dutch National High Tech.

There is also one covering UK cost incurred due to cybercrime and like but more specific to UK sectors. The report published by security consultancy Detica provides a breakdown of the cybercrime total with industrial espionage costing an amazing 7.6bn GBP. 

Similarly there is a recent Symantec's "2011 State of Security Survey," published talking the cost breached and break down to various countries.

There may not be very specific cost breach report spanning the past year but more of separate report for each year for reader to collate. There is also a datalossdb tracking of the data loss which I see it god to know all reported case, but nothing on cost though. any specific criterias you looking out for would be useful in consultancy firm reports, may be customised though.

Breadtan,

   Thanks.  Some of those I am familiar with, but some I was not.  I'll give it another day or so for people to respond.  If no one does, I'll give you the points.  Thanks for the suggestions!
