Notable Cyber Security Fines

November 25, 2015

The amount of UK businesses falling victim to cyber attacks has steadily grown over the past several years. Cyber attacks do not discriminate—businesses big and small, urban and rural, and across all industries have been targeted.

It is dangerous to believe that cyber attacks can only happen to other businesses or that the fines will be miniscule. Cyber attacks threaten the survival of every business, and the fines can be ruinous. As a business owner or manager, you need to be aware of the risks associated with cyber attacks and the strategies for bolstering cyber security.

Learn from the mistakes in the following Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) prosecutions to ensure that your business does not suffer the same consequences.
