UK businesses expect cyber attack recovery to cost at least £1.2 million


"More than half of UK businesses expect to be hit by a cyber attack and that recovery costs will be £1.2 million or more, a study has revealed.

This is the highest figure globally, according to the Risk:Value 2016 report by information security and risk management company NTT Com Security.

The report is based on a survey of business decision makers in the UK, the US, Germany, France, Sweden, Norway and Switzerland.

Although about 50% of UK respondents said information security was vital to their organisation and agreed it was good practice, 20% admitted that poor information security was the single greatest risk to the business, ahead of decreasing profits (12%), competitors taking market share (11%) and on a par with lack of employee skills (21%).”
