"Outside of geopolitical conflict and terrorism, our research has found that malware continues to be a major threat. In fact, it was the most prolific type of cyberattack UK businesses experienced in 2019. Our latest UK Threat Report was published in October 2019.

Why Businesses Should Start Prioritising Cybersecurity
"Ransomware attacks on such a massive scale seem to happen at least once a month nowadays. The entire American city of Baltimore was “held hostage” in May. A similar incident happened in Greenville, North Carolina the previous month.

Massive attacks aside, cybercriminals tend to target small businesses due to fewer investments in their cybersecurity infrastructure. It’s predicted that a new organization will be affected by such an attack every 11 seconds as soon as 2021."

Cisco warns of DeOS attacks
"The use of the Internet of Things (IoT) by hackers has been well documented. A significant part of the problem is the lack of security in too many Internet connected devices. Enterprise IT departments often have no say in the purchase of many of these devices. Security cameras, fridges, televisions and other goods are often purchased by different departments. Few of them have any security training."
