  • This edition of Quocirca’s The trouble at your door report looks at how six British organisations have ended up on the worst 40 attacks list, despite the average British business being better prepared to defend against targeted cyber attacks than its European counterparts.
  • There is a greater than 1 in 10 chance that a breach will lead to serious data loss and/or reputational damage – but putting in place certain ‘before, during and after’ measures can minimise the data losses, reputational damage and overall business cost of such attacks.
  • The most commonly stolen data type is payment card or personal customer information, but as not all businesses deal with payment cards, personal customer data is the biggest overall concern, as Europeans face up to the forthcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
