A Tenable commissioned study of more than 800 global business and cybersecurity leaders conducted by Forrester Consulting revealed the vast majority of UK organisations (96%) have experienced a business-impacting cyber-attack in the past 12 months.
63% of respondents in the UK have witnessed a dramatic increase in the number of business-impacting cyber-attacks over the past two years. Unfortunately, these attacks had damaging effects, with organisations reporting loss of employee data (44%), financial loss or theft (36%) and customer attrition (34%).
EMEA Channel Director Guy March, said: “It is crucial for reseller partners to frame cybersecurity solutions within the context of specific business needs in order to truly help organisations tackle the damaging effects of cyber-attacks.
“Resellers play a vital role in helping security and business leaders align to better manage cybersecurity as a strategic business risk. Channel partners that can speak the language of both business and security leaders will certainly have an advantage in helping organisations navigate the growing number of relentless cyberattacks.”
