The cost of staying safe from cyber criminals
UK businesses are spending huge sums of money every year protecting their critical assets against opportunistic cyber criminals. And according to our recent research, a spate of high-profile data breaches has seen that number pass the £6.5bn mark. It’s a frightening statistic considering challenges businesses, particularly SMEs, face over the coming months, and it is at tough times like these that things like security testing often get put on the back burner, despite the obvious threats.
It’s not beyond reason that if you’ll read a story today about a business that has been on the receiving end of a security breach. We live in a digital age where the internet plays a pivotal role in the success of businesses. And the advent of the internet of things is only going to make things more complicated, with hackers presented with even more ways to gain access to a business’ data.
