Information security breaches survey 2012

Cover

��

This is the latest of the series of Information Security Breaches Surveys, carried out every couple of years since the early 1990s.

��

This year���s results show that security breaches remain at historically high levels, costing UK plc billions of pounds every year.

��

A big driver of this is the continuing escalation of cyberattacks. The number of significant hacking attacks on large organisations has doubled over the last two years.

��

We���re also seeing many data protection breaches, data loss events and computer frauds, particularly in organisations that haven���t invested in staff education.

��

Most serious breaches result from failings in a combination of people, process and technology; it���s important to invest in all three aspects.

��

Summary:

  • One in seven large organisations has been hacked in the last year
  • The average large organisation faces a significant outsider attack every week - small businesses one a month
  • 20% of organisations spend less than 1% of their IT budget on information security
  • Customer impersonation up threefold since 2008 ��� financial services affected most
