Cyber Security Teams Continue to Be Understaffed Despite the Increase in Ransomware Attacks

By: SBWire

London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/27/2021 -- Cyber security has become a top priority, especially given the number of operations that moved to a remote basis during 2020 and early 2021. Nevertheless, globally 61% of organisations say their cyber security teams are understaffed. A small business is hacked every 19 seconds in the UK and this year has also seen a vast increase in the number of ransomware attacks targeting big enterprises and national infrastructure. As a result, the cyber security industry is growing at an exponential pace with businesses moving quickly to keep up with the latest threats and optimise investment in tech and protection. Crucial to that protection are the cyber security professionals who are able to understand and navigate the global threat landscape when it comes to cyber security. With the cost of the average data breach coming in at £1.79 million it's more important than ever before for organisations to have dedicated cyber security programme in place.
