The growing trend of plans that don’t safeguard businesses or their customers

Is your business really ready for a data breach?

According to our extensive analysis, one in five businesses across different sectors (21%) has experienced a data breach in the past two years, with loss or theft of records containing sensitive or confidential information. This statistic is similar to last year’s findings (23%). Although this may not sound like a hefty figure, the reality is cyber criminals are becoming nimbler by the day. Data breach readiness is therefore a sensible business decision that, as we will discover, is a lot more cost effective than waiting for the worst to happen.

In this whitepaper, we look at how prepared businesses are and how closely aligned this is to consumer expectations. The findings include:

In this whitepaper, we look at how prepared businesses are and how closely aligned this is to consumer expectations. The findings include:

>   Response plan effectiveness: While many businesses have plans in place, we analyse      if their plans are rigorous enough and if businesses really are as ready as they claim.

>   Customer confidence: Maintaining customer trust is of paramount importance to              businesses. Many businesses acknowledge this, but do they really take steps to                  prioritise this? We look at the reputational damage that’s at stake.

>   Who's ultimately responsible?: Increasingly it’s IT business decision-makers who are          chosen to lead the organisation's breach plans - but are they the right people and                ultimately do they understand what this evolving responsibility really entails?

>   Across international borders: We assess the state of play of current regulations – and      what it means for businesses trading with customers in Europe, and further afield.
