Cybercriminals outspend businesses in cyber security battle
Cybercriminals are investing significantly more resources in identifying vulnerabilities in cyber defences than organizations are in protecting themselves. The cybercrime community reportedly spends over $1tn annually on developing cyber-attacks, while organizations globally allocate only $96bn for defence. This disparity has led to an increase in cyber-attacks, with the UK being a primary target. Recent research indicates that 92% of UK businesses experienced a breach in the past year, with many facing multiple breaches. The most common attacks were malware and ransomware. The report emphasises the growing sophistication of cyber-attacks and the challenges organizations face due to limited resources and budgets. – Learn more about the cyber security battle between criminals and businesses.
