Cyber Security Breaches Survey shows in 2023 that 32% of all UK businesses identified breaches or attacks from the last 12 months. This is much higher for medium businesses (59%), and large businesses (69%).
The scale of cyber threats continues to accelerate at a rapid pace, not just in frequency but complexity. Research shows that businesses deprioritised cyber security throughout the pandemic to focus on business continuity but prioritisation for cyber resilience is now at an all-time high, yet few businesses have implemented actions to enhance cyber security.
As hybrid working continues and with changes in attacker behaviour has made it all the more difficult for businesses to identify breaches and are struggling to manage and minimise cyber risks.
Phishing (fraudulent attempts to extract important information, such as passwords via emails or being directed to fraudulent websites)
Impersonation (others impersonating organisations in emails or online)
Malware and other viruses (computer programs designed to infiltrate and damage computers without the user’s consent)
These types of attacks are also the most disruptive to a business, which can result in loss of money and data, disruption to websites and systems being corrupted amongst others.
