IASME Standard – Staying protected in today’s cyber landscape

Although it might seem like a bitter pill to swallow, the truth is that the cyber landscape has never posed a more serious threat to businesses than it does today. A 2017 report conducted by the UK government’s department for culture, media and sport found that:

• 46% of all UK businesses have suffered at least one cyber attack in past 12 months
• This figure rises to 66% among medium-sized businesses, and 68% among large businesses*
• 37% of businesses admitted to experiencing breaches on a monthly basis
• More than one in ten (13%) admitted to experiencing breaches on a daily basis
