    Cyber-attacks on US corporations now average one a week and hackers in recent months have targeted Mastercard, Visa and Amazon.

    A survey of 50 large US companies found they spent 56 per cent more on cyber security this year. Some companies are recruiting "e-security consultants".

    As Kristen Saloomey reports, many of them are former hackers.
