Almost 10% of companies in the UK are unaware they have been victim to cyber security attacks with incidents now costing an average of £1.7million, according to a new report.
The annual survey, which involved more than 10,000 executive from more than 127 countries, showed an escalation in the frequency, severity and impact of cyber-attacks.
Insiders – either current or former employers – top the list as a major source of incidents with 14% of companies unsure of how they happened.
But it was also found firms are becoming more adept at prevention and detection methods with innovation also on the rise.
