SMEs remain underprepared as cyber threat grows

Small-medium sized enterprises (SMEs) remain particularly vulnerable to cyber attacks, with just half of SMEs surveyed by Argo Group having purchased protection despite the drastically rising threat of cyber crime.

Cyber security imageNearly two-thirds of SMEs surveyed have already been victims of a cyber incident, but the majority of firms remain underprepared with less than half of respondents believing their cyber cover is adequate.

However, SMEs that purchase cyber insurance policies show high satisfaction rates with their products: 89% say their cyber insurance is performing as expected, 86% report their cyber insurance covered the security breaches they suffered, and 68% said they were “satisfied” with their cyber cover, according to the Argo survey.

Firms with cyber insurance protection both value and use the product; 36% of respondents with cyber insurance policies have filed claims with their providers in the past 12 months, and

Russian-speaking countries pose ‘number-one cyber threat to UK …

Russian-speaking countries pose the “number one cyber crime threat to the UK” as billions of pounds are lost in daily attacks, it has been revealed.

Senior police and intelligence officials warned of an increasing crossover between hostile states and criminal groups seeking to profit from targeting governments, national infrastructure, businesses and individuals.

They warned that attacks as severe as the WannaCry ransomware outbreak, which crippled the NHS by hitting 81 trusts and affecting 19,000 appointments, could happen again.

“WannaCry is not going to be the last attack to hit the UK and things are likely to get worse before they get better,” said Oliver Gower, head of the National Cyber Crime Unit. “State actors have tried and will try again to target the UK.

“We also know that terrorists show the intent to use cyber attacks to cause damage and spread fear, but we don’t yet believe they have the capability to launch

How To Profit From The $6 Trillion A Year Cyber Crime Threat

Cybercrime attacks are expected to cost us $6 trillion a year by 2021. In a single year, cyber terrorism could cost us three times more than the entire U.S. housing and real estate industry is currently worth.

The Chairman of IBM calls it the “greatest threat to every profession, every industry, every company in the world”. Cisco cites a report saying it will be more profitable than the global trade of all major illegal drugs combined. ATT calls it the greatest transfer of economic wealth in history.

The response? A desperate scramble to ramp up spending to protect their businesses, and another massive opportunity for investors.

With an estimated 4,000 cyber-attacks a day —and counting—the solution has to be serious. It has to be military-grade. And one little-known company has emerged with a unique military-grade cyber defense
