Atleast 96% businesses in UK suffered one major cyber attack in 2019

According to a survey conducted by Forrester, at least 96% of businesses have suffered one major cyber attack in 2019. Also, the study commissioned by Tenable said that there has been a dramatic rise in business impacting cyber attacks in the last two years.

The study also discovered that ransomware attacks have evolved into an amazing sophistication in the past 18 months, as it has proved as a treasure trove for hackers in business.

Titled as ‘The Rise of the Business –Aligned Security Executive’ and published by Tenable, the report says that nearly 44% of organizations lost employee data to hackers and 36% of them lost to financial loss or theft. Also, 34% of them reported customer runaway as soon as they learnt about the attack.

“The only way to stop the attacks from reaching the company’s critical infrastructure is to ensure that regular security measures are being aligned with wider business objectives”, said Renaud Deraison, the CTO of Tenable.

Mr. Deraison added that it’s high time for CISOs to bring cyber security in every business question, decision, and investment.

Guy March, the EMEA Channel Director of Tenable said that resellers play a vital role in helping businesses in keeping their Cybersecurity skills up to the mark. Also, Channel partners who can speak both the language of businesses and security leaders will play a significant role in helping companies navigate through the growing numbers of relentless cyber attacks.
