Whilst you’re likely to have seen huge amounts of press about high profile data leakages and hackings that have happened at huge organisations such as Yahoo and Dixons Carphone Warehouse, what you might not be able to understand is how that relates to you and your business.
Firstly, what you need to understand is that not all of the targets for cybercrime are huge multi-billion pound organisations – these are just the ones that you hear about as they make the press/internet. What you don’t hear about are your suppliers, customers, neighbouring businesses that yesterday got ‘phished’ and have had all their emails forwarded to an unknown source, or their MD’s email spoofed and the Accounts Dept has transferred £10,000 to pay a new supplier.
This is the real world of cyber crime, it’s happening on a daily basis and is on the increase, here are some interesting facts:
- Business cyber crime is up 63% year on year
- 4 in 10 businesses experienced a cyber security breach of some kind in 2017
- On average it takes businesses 120 days to realise data has been compromised
- Only 3 in 10 businesses have a cyber security policy
