A recent study reveals that only 53% of UK boards have a data breach management plan in place – this is not enough for the modern-day cyber threats. Alongside this, the study also revealed that 48% of businesses stated that cyber security only comes up on the agenda “every few months”, with many suggesting that it only came up twice a year. This survey also stated that out of the companies surveyed, on average only 9% of their IT budget was being spent on cyber security. These figures lead to the notion that there is a lacking of confidence between IT teams and C-level management. This was contributing to the prevention of development of their Incident Response processes.
