Liverpool Law Society – Cyber Conference: Managing Your Risks

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.

81% of large corporations and 60% of small businesses reported a cyber breach in 2015. With the cost for the worst cyber-security breach estimated between £600,000 to £1.15 million for large businesses and £65,000 to £115,000 for smaller ones, the government must look at new ways to protect businesses and make the UK more resilient to cyber attacks and crime.
