The cost of the average data breach in the UK jumped in 2010 as businesses were hit hard by cyber criminals. The average data breach cost UK organisations £1.9 million in 2010, up 13 per cent from 2009 and 18 per cent from 2008, a report by Symantec and Ponemon Institute showed.
Malicious or criminal attacks were behind 29 per cent of all data breaches and the most expensive incident in 2010 cost the affected firm £6.2 million, compared to the £3.9 million expense hitting the most unfortunate business in the previous year.
We believe that cyber risk and business resilience are the most important security issues facing UK businesses today.
