21% of UK businesses have suffered a data breach in the past two years. This doesn’t necessarily have to be a high profile hack of 100,000s records – 80% of data breaches are due to a simple human error such as a lost laptop or an incorrect email respondent. The growing opinion is that it’s not a matter of if, but when, a data breach will occur.
What’s important is how prepared you are and how you react when a data breach happens.
