Cyber-attacks are the greatest threats UK businesses face

More than half (52 per cent) of the organisations said they do not have the capability to assess the impact to their information security by emerging technologies.

Mark Brown, information security director at EY said: “This year’s results show that while businesses are faced with a rising number of security breaches, budget constraints and talent shortages mean that they fail to put in place those systems that match their needs.

“As a result, for UK businesses, this is no longer an issue of whether they will be attacked – the reality is that organisations need to now focus their efforts on determining when the attack took place and identifying that they fell victim to the cyber threat in the first place.

“Organisations must undertake more proactive thinking, with tone-from-the-top support. Greater emphasis on improving employee awareness, increasing budgets and devoting more resources to innovating security solutions is needed.”
