Lack of cyber security awareness putting UK organisations at risk


"A lack of cyber security awareness among employees is putting UK organisations at greater risk, a study has revealed.

UK organisations are putting their reputation, customer trust and competitive advantage at greater risk by failing to provide staff with effective cyber security awareness and capability to defend against cyber attacks, according to the study commissioned by Axelos, a UK government joint venture with outsourcing firm Capita.

Axelos was set up in July 2013 to develop, enhance and promote a number of best-practice methodologies in project, programme and portfolio management, IT service management and cyber resilience.

The research shows that most UK organisations are underestimating the ‘human factor’ of employee behaviour in corporate cyber risk.”
