Apr 2019 – Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2019

The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport’s Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2019 is an interesting read…not only if you’re into Cyber Security 🙂

A key message is that fewer companies have identified breaches or attacks than before, perhaps because the introduction of GDPR has had a positive impact on their cyber security posture. The report does say that where organisations have lost data or assets through security breaches, the resulting costs have consistently risen since 2017. The survey continues to disappoint in the sense that most organisations, particularly smaller ones, are not aware of Government initiatives such as Cyber Aware, 10 Steps to Cyber Security, and Cyber Essentials.

Help is at hand, Consult MB Ltd in Weston-super-Mare, North Somerset conducts much of its cyber security work based on ’10 Steps’ and Cyber Essentials. Check out our services options for more details.
