The low number of firms protecting themselves is also surprising. Doing the basics will protect companies against many cyber issues, and these measures do not need to be expensive or resource intensive.

Customers and consumers will not stick with companies that can’t get a handle on cyber protection. The links between mature cyber security, increased digital skills and company value are becoming much more pronounced. Good cyber security is a good indicator for how well the organisation will cope with an increasingly digital business world.
