Cybercrime Isn’t Going Away Anytime Soon.
Preparing employees and the business for a cyberattack or breach is a necessity in today’s connected and digital world.
*Nearly half of all UK businesses and a quarter of charities reported a cybersecurity breach or attack in the last 12 months.
85% of charities reported that they have received fraudulent emails or were directed to fraudulent websites. This was corroborated by the business community with 86% reporting the same problem. Unfortunately, according to the survey these attacks are the most disruptive.
Furthermore, as the size of the business increases so does the risk. Micro firms surveyed showed that 43% had identified breaches or attacks in the last 12 months compared with small businesses at 62%.
Medium-sized businesses that have identified breaches or attacks in the last year stood at 68%. Additionally, 75% of larger enterprises reported the same.
Researchers estimate that a staggering 91% of cyberattacks begin with an email and the most popular within medium and larger organisations are impersonation emails.
Spending time now on your security, policies, and procedures can help prevent a breach.
It is equally important that your employees know exactly how to respond should an attack be successful. This knowledge will save the business time, money, and data.
Finally, if you provide a service Cyber Insurance is also something you should consider.
