The DCMS (Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport) has released the Cyber Security Breaches Survey for 2022.
Key findings show that the percentage of businesses reporting having identified a cyber attack remains at 39%, which is the same as 2021. Phishing was the most common attack method, with 83% of attacks being reported to be phishing.
The average cost of a cyber attack in the last 12 months was £4200, with larger businesses paying out even larger sums. Just under half of those affected have insurance policies that cover cyber-attacks.
The NCSC offers guidance to organisations of all sizes. This includes training packages and measures that can be implemented and gaining the Cyber Essentials certification.
