2 out of 3 organizations have experienced at least one cyber security incident during the last year.

Cyber attacks and data breaches have proven to be two of the greatest concerns for business continuity professionals for several years running. The latest research from the Business Continuity Institute has shown that:

  • 88% of BC professionals have expressed concern about the prospect of these threats materialising
  • In the last year, 66% of organizations have reported at least 1 cyber security incident
  • 15% of organizations have experienced at least 10 cyber security incidents in the previous year.

Looking at the trends that have evolved out of this research, it is no surprise that cyber security was selected as the theme for 2017’s Business Continuity Awareness Week. As the world becomes more digitally-led we must address the new threats the virtual world presents.

Some may even ask if Business Continuity and Information Security are converging!
