Awareness Tops Readiness in UK Cybersecurity Preparedness

Awareness Tops Readiness in UK Cybersecurity Preparedness 

UK organizations are well-aware of their cybersecurity threat landscape. Unfortunately, that has not enhanced their ability to improve their defensive posture. According to a recent survey, only 42% of organizations are confident in their data security, 10% fewer than companies in other countries. 

While 90% of survey respondents indicated that adopting cybersecurity best practices is more important than increasing profits, less than 60% of these companies have a formal security policy, a number that has not changed since last year. 

Indifference may not be the only factor in their lack of preparation. Many companies cite budgetary and personnel constraints as a significant barrier to improving cybersecurity posture. 

Even so, the cost of a data breach is more expensive than ever before. The survey found that organizations will dedicate 12% of their revenue to recovering from a data breach, an all-time high. With companies like ours equipped to fortify your cybersecurity defenses, now is the perfect time to prepare your company for today’s evolving threat landscape.
