The meteoric rise of cyber-security breaches












The Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2017 found that despite just under half (46 per cent) of all UK businesses experiencing at least one cyber-security breach or attack in the previous 12 months, rising to two-thirds among medium-sized firms (66 per cent) and 68 per cent for large firms, a sizable proportion of businesses still did not have basic protection or had not formalised their approaches to cyber-security. Two thirds of businesses do not have specific board members responsible for this area. In addition, only 20 per cent of businesses have had staff attend any form of cyber-security training in the last 12 months, and just a third have a formal policy in place.
