A recent survey from the government’s annual Cyber Governance Health Check has found some interesting insights into cyber security, amongst the UK’s 350 biggest FTSE companies. The results found that 10% of boards have no procedures in place to respond to cyber attacks, while only 6% of respondents state that their business is completely ready for the new data laws being brought in, in next May’s cyber regulation shake up.
Worrying Reading for Businesses
Worryingly, the results also showed that only 31% of boards receive comprehensive intelligence supporting cyber risk and 68% of businesses have received no training in cyber security area whatsoever. This is bad news for UK businesses, as it doesn’t fill customers with confidence due to a lack of trust, which could ultimately result in reduced profits. This is particularly relevant for businesses within industries such as the financial sector; if personal information and security is breached through a cyber attack, this could result in huge losses and irreparable reputation damage.
