Defending and responding to cyber attacks

How prepared is your organisation against the very real risk of a cyber attack? Does your business have a plan for how to respond quickly to a cyber security threat?

How are businesses dealing with cyber attack risks?

Among business leaders we asked, 95% of them are concerned about cyber and data security. Half of organisations have experienced a cyber attack in the past 12 months, with one-third experiencing multiple attacks. A lack of consistency within businesses in approach to GDPR, training and ransomware threats is likely to further increase the risks. These are some of the findings from a recent survey carried out by our technology and cyber security lawyers at Mills & Reeve and insurance experts at Aon. The resulting report, which you can view and download a full copy of for free below, is a stark reminder of the size of the threat and the impact cyber attacks can have on a business.
