I don’t want to scare you. But forewarned is forearmed. So on this occasion I’m going to. Just a little bit.

The last few days I’ve been reading some scary stats about cyber security attacks on UK businesses.

Ready to hear them?

Get this face ready: 😲

Here we go…

  • There are around 65,000 attempts every day to hack into businesses in the UK
  • 4,500 a day are successful (scary)
  • 37% of UK companies have reported a data breach to the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) in the last 12 months
  • 44% of people say they’d stop spending with a business after a security breach
  • 33% of UK businesses say they’ve lost business after a data breach
  • YET… only 31% of UK businesses have done a cyber security risk assessment this year. Go figure

What could this mean for your business? Are you taking the necessary steps to protect your data from a security breach?

Shall we do a data security review? There’s not a lot of work for you personally to do.
