Two thirds of top firms ‘unprepared for cyber-attacks’

Britain’s biggest businesses are unprepared for the growing threat of cyber-attacks, with more than two-thirds of firms admitting workers lack the appropriate training, new research has shown.

A Government survey of FTSE 350 companies reveals more than half (54%) of the UK’s leading organizations believe cyber-security is a top concern for their business.

Despite this, two thirds (68%) of boards say they have received no training to respond to an attack.

And one in 10 firms admits to having no cyber-security plan in place whatsoever, leaving them exposed to hackers, ransomware and serious attacks.
