CEOs’ Lack of Cyber Awareness Is Exposing UK Business To Major Risk

Redseal has announced the results of a new UK survey that reveals CEOs and other senior executives are regularly at risk of being targeted by cybercriminal networks.

Some of the findings include:

  • 75% of those IT pros surveyed also stated that their CEO must pay more attention to cybersecurity, with almost the same amount (74%) saying that their customers’ information has been put at risk because of a cyberattack or breach on their organisation.
  • The research also revealed that 42% of UK companies don’t have a cyber-response plan in place to inform customers of a security breach and that over a quarter (26%) will only report the major breaches to their CEO.

The UK Government’s recent Cyber Breaches report cited that only 38% of UK businesses have recorded an attack, whereas this most recent research from RedSeal is showing that 81% of senior IT professionals admit to their company having suffered a breach.
