Cybercrime is a growing problem; in the region, we have seen recent cyber-attacks hit businesses of all sizes and sectors. Some of the recent attacks have included:
A cyber-attack on a Mercedes dealership which has sites in Erdington and Solihull
A cyber-attack on Worcestershire Councils Special Educational Needs Department (SEND)
A security incident at a Walsall construction firm confirmed as a cyber attack
Cyber attacks are potentially ruinous events for business owners. The average cost of a cyber security breach in the United Kingdom is £1,010 across all businesses, however, this figure becomes greater as the size of a business increases. The cost of a cyber attack is not only financial, with the average time large businesses spend on managing the impact amounting to 3.4 days, according to statista.com.
