Overview

Cyber-attacks and data breaches cost organisations billions of pounds every year and as the world becomes more digitally-led that figure is likely to go up. Incidents are increasing globally and are unpredictable, sometimes going undetected for months or years.

Cyber threats can not only be malicious software that attempts to breach your organisation's firewalls, but it can also be unsolicited email, containing a link to a legitimate website, which launches a program and allows unauthorised access to all of your organisation's systems and databases.

There are many different types of cyber attacks, including social engineering and phishing. Similarly, the people and organisations who carry them out have different motivations, including for money or political ideals.
