Not even a drop-in-a-bucket

The legally disclosed hacks aren't even a drop-in-the-bucket of actual criminal hacking that is ongoing 24/7. The recent crypto currency hack disclosures for millions in bank losses should be a red flag that all should note. Stock market hacks should be another. Loss of system controls in utility company power systems should be another. U.S. election campaign hacking by Russian hackers is legend. If the general public knew how bad the security situation really is there would be mass panic world wide. That is why authorities don't disclose most of the major hacks happening daily. The black hats outnumber the white hats 10,000 to 1.
