The central body overseeing cyber security in the UK is currently defeating around 10 attacks every week, as well as working to combat phishing. For instance, more than 746,000
phishing emails were blocked in just one month within the NHS network.
The NCSC has also actively closed almost 140,000 websites which were established by cyber criminals to resemble the sites of banks, Government agencies and businesses, to dupeconsumers and businesses into revealing personal financial details.
Many of the attempts to breach cyber security that have been repelled were perpetrated within nation states hostile to the UK and NSCS is said to be on a heightened level of alert following the Salisbury nerve agent attack. UK businesses need to be just as aware of what could emerge and should protect themselves and their assets.
In this climate, all businesses should be seriously considering cyber insurance. To find out more about this now almost ‘vital’ type of insurance protection and how it can safeguard your
