The Cyber Threat
Over the last 10 years, we’ve seen massive growth in cybercrime. According to data from the UK Government’s Cyber Breaches Report in 2022, 39% of UK businesses reported cyber breaches in the last 12 months – and those are just the cases that were reported! Unfortunately, these numbers are only rising as we become more and more reliant on technology within our organisations.
UK businesses are experiencing an estimated 65,000 cyber attack attempts daily. The message is clear: Cyber security needs to be a priority for every business owner.
Phishing attacks have gone up from 72% to 83% in the last 4 years
The average cost of breaches experienced by businesses in the last 12 months is £8460
31% of companies reporting cyber attacks experience them more than once a week.
