Cyber Security

Companies in UK are overconfident in their cyber security and underestimate damage caused after a security breach. UK firms should be running back to normal within 48 hours of a cyber breach. When a large scale cyber-attack can take months or years to find and fix the issue. 63% of companies recognise the damage as a risk of a data breach. Also only 26% of companies include PR and communications chiefs in incident response planning. 72% of companies understand that the company can lose revenue.

Recently numbers of attackers are pretending to be high level employees to process fraudulent payments. From the last quarter there has increased over 400% by con companies` employees.
