2017 will be remembered as the year of ransomware attacks, massive data breaches, supply chain threats and a catalogue of destructive cyber-attacks which placed the importance of robust Cyber Security at the centre of business strategy. We also witnessed a new calibre of data breach and cyber outrage, the WannaCry ransomware attack launched in May and spread rapidly with over 300,000 devices quickly infected, spanning 150 countries and affecting critical services across the world, including the NHS. This attack demonstrated the real-world harm that can result from security breaches particularly when they are designed to self-replicate and spread and reinforced the vital necessity for businesses of all sizes to be prepared.
Cyber-attacks are also resulting in significant financial losses to businesses of all sizes. The costs arise from not just the attack itself but repairing reputational damage caused by regaining public trust.
