How Cybercrime is Ruining Cyber Businesses

By BT, Special for  USDR

Only a fifth of IT decision makers in large multinational corporations are confident that their organisation is fully prepared against the threat of cyber-criminals. The vast majority of companies feel constrained by regulation, available resources and a dependence on third parties when responding to attacks, according to new research from BT and  KPMG.

The report, Taking the Offensive – Working together to disrupt digital crime finds that, while 94 per cent of IT decision makers are aware that criminal entrepreneurs are blackmailing and bribing employees to gain access to organisations, roughly half (47 per cent) admit that they don’t have a strategy in place to prevent  it.
