26% of British businesses ‘have no protection against cyber attacks’
Although businesses understand the importance of digital innovation, they aren’t prepared for the challenges
Almost a third of UK businesses are not sufficiently prepared against a cyber attack, research by software and services provider Advanced has revealed.
Additionally, 46% of companies don’t view data security as a priority when deciding which systems and software to adopt when furthering their digital presence.
“Digital innovation presents a huge opportunity for companies and our economy, but it also goes hand in hand with a need for greater emphasis on cyber security,” Tom Thackray, CBI Director for Innovation, said.
“Cyber resilience is a growing priority for all businesses, and the challenge now is to move from awareness to action. It’s important that businesses in all sectors – from manufacturing to retail – truly understand digital technology’s potential, from the boardroom to the shop or factory floor.”
