Cyber security – a common problem
The Government’s “2015 information security breaches survey”, conducted by PwC, confirmed that 90% of large, and 74% of small organisations had a security breach in the past 12 months – in fact, the median number of breaches was 14 and 4 respectively. 81% of large organisations stated that there was an element of staff involvement in some of the breaches, whereas only 27% of small organisations suffered an incident caused by staff. 28% of all respondents, however, reported that the worst security breach was partly caused by senior management giving insufficient priority to security within their organisation.
