The Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has published the results of a survey of UK businesses on cybersecurity breaches. The headline figures from the survey indicate that 46% of all businesses identified at least one cybersecurity breach or attack in the last year, with that figure rising to 66% among mediumsized firms and 68% among large firms. The average cost of such breaches is £1,570, with medium-sized firms incurring costs of £3,070 on average and large firms incurring much higher average costs of £19,600. Businesses generally appear to recognise that cybersecurity is an important issue, with 74% of respondents to the survey stating that cybersecurity is a high priority for their senior management and a mere 7% indicating that the issue is very low priority. The DCMS has concluded that, amongst other things, businesses would benefit from consulting government guidance on cybersecurity and having strong technical controls and governance measures in place.
