Breached? It will cost more thank you think!

In 2014, the Department for Business Innovation & Skills (BIS) reported a decrease in information security breaches, but a doubling of the costs associated with investigating and remediating consequences.  Organisations are often blinkered to the actual breaches rather than the ‘collateral damage' caused as a result of a data security attack. Instead they should be cognisant of the increasingly sophisticated methods used by the many threat actors out there, and how unprepared we are to respond to such attacks. 

Unsurprisingly, cyber breaches (as they are now wont to be called) have increased in number and sophistication since the report was published: this increases the actual (true) cost of breaches, as the inability to detect, identify and respond increases exponentially
