Risks in the Digital Age

8 mins 41 secs

Overview

How secure are you? The question may seem straightforward but is far from it. As far back as 2007, the University of Maryland found that a computer with an internet connection, is being attacked on average once every 39 seconds. 65,000 SMEs in the UK are targeted with attempted cyber attacks every day, according to data from the insurer Hiscox. While most attempts are unsuccessful, a successful attack is carried out every 19 seconds. On average, companies take over nine months to identify a breach and take the necessary corrective measures, and typical cleanup costs run to over £25,000. The modern internet has introduced a raft of potential threats that most people don’t even think about. Cybercriminals have attacked universities, national governments and multinational companies indiscriminately.

Key learning objectives:

  • Understand how digitally secure we really are

  • Understand how anyone can be targeted by cybercriminals

  • Outline are main cybersecurity risks and protection methods
