Cyber Security: Protecting Information and Assets Workshop – 18th July 2013

What’s it about?

UK PLC is facing an unprecedented and largely unseen threat from ‘cyber’ crime…computer based crime targeting public and private computer systems with the intent of accessing personal and commercial data and financial information.

With ever greater openness, interconnection and dependency comes greater vulnerability.  The UK government’s National Security Strategy categorised cyber-attacks as a ‘Tier One’ threat to our national security, alongside international terrorism.

The threat is real and growing.

93% of large corporations and 76% of small businesses reported a cyber-breach in the past year.  On average over 33,000 malicious emails are blocked at the Gateway to the Government Secure Intranet (GSI) every month.  These are likely to contain – or link to – sophisticated malware.  A far greater number of malicious, but less sophisticated emails and spam are blocked each month.

With the cost for a cyber-security breach estimated between £110,000 to 250,000 for large businesses and £15,000 to 30,000 for smaller ones, we must all look at new ways to protect businesses and make the UK more resilient to cyber-attacks and crime.
