Lack of ‘cyber protection’ revealed in survey.

The Ponemon Institute has done more research into how well prepared IT and security professionals are for attacks on their cyber systems, the results are in, and it is abundantly clear that they are simply not prepared, at all!

The results of the survey, commissioned by Juniper Networks showed, that 84% of more than 1,000 IT and security professionals asked in the UK, Germany and France admitted to suffering security breaches.

For a staggering 44% of these organisations, the breaches cost them more than £220,000. Cyber threats are progressing in both how regularly they occur, and how sophisticated they are, it is imperative that companies know how to protect their networks and their hardware.

As far as the UK is concerned, UK organisations reported several breaches, 55% of respondents admitting to two or more breaches in the past 12 months alone, and 91% admitting to at least one breach, these results are shocking and hammer home how vital it is to have dependable ‘cyber protection’ and what is truly shocking is that 6% of the UK organisations said they did not know if they had even had an attack!

The light at the end of a very dark and dangerous tunnel is that Rombus can help you protect your business as whole by increasing your network security and ultimately your business stability.
