Business cyber security in the UK - Statistics & Facts

In the United Kingdom (UK), 22 percent of companies reported experiencing a cyber security breach or attack at least once a month between 2020 and 2021. In general, a security breach relates to an incident that results in unauthorized access to data, networks, devices, or applications. This can cause serious damage to organizations as it impedes their ability to operate. Other repercussions include the loss of valuable or sensitive information.

Cybersecurity spending increases

Because of the attacks, cybersecurity spending is increasing. Investing in technologies as well as cyber security professionals can help mitigate damage by building successful security strategies that protect businesses from attacks before they occur. This also helps to speed up business operations after an attack, and lead to an overall shorter recovery time. The goal of cybersecurity investments is therefore not only to protect data from theft and damage, but also to make companies more resilient in an increasingly digitized world.
