Ransomware and business in the UK

Last week (26th January 2016), Foursys published the results of its cybersecurity survey: IT Security Survey Results: “Cybersecurity in 2016 and beyond”. Questions were posed to more than 400 organizations in the UK, from SMEs to major corporates and public sector organizations. Somewhat alarmingly, of the 15.8% of respondents who admitted to a security breach event in 2015 (a further 15.8% declined to disclose),  41.9% of respondents said they’d suffered a ransomware breach, which is why I’m mentioning it here.

The overall results of the survey are summarized in infographic form here.
