The threat is pervasive and although you might think it does not apply to you, or that you are too small to matter, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Just ask the Financial Director of the £5 million specialist grinding paper manufacturer that was hacked by Nation State actors as part of a 17 strand attack.
Over £20 billion of intellectual property was compromised in the UK last year. Each year, this number increases as perpetrators use ever more advanced techniques and attack vectors to penetrate security systems and processes. The average cost of the worst security breach for small organisations was £35,000 to £65,000 and for large organisations was between £450,000 and £850,000.
The constantly evolving threat environment is such that you can soon fall behind the curve and are no longer secure. Cyber security is not a product; it is a journey.
