A new report has revealed that almost HALF of businesses in the UK have not implemented a cyber security strategy, leaving themselves vulnerable to breaches.
Despite a high number of recent attacks, the report revealed that only 57% of UK businesses are protecting their devices and data with a formal cyber security strategy. This is even more surprising as 94% of the respondents stated that they believed that the security of their IT systems was important.
This suggests that while businesses know they should be concerned about cyber security, they may not know how best to protect themselves or who to report concerns to. For many small businesses, lack of training and awareness is a massive weak spot when it comes to cyber security, however with the right support and strategy in place, attacks could be easily prevented.
Richard Brown, Director EMEA Channels & Alliances at Arbor Networks: “The fact that more than a third of UK businesses lack a formal strategy against cyber-attacks is shocking. Attack methodologies are evolving by the day and as such, it is no longer acceptable for businesses to be complacent about their cyber security strategy.
