CEOs and Head of Companies are starting to realise the huge risk of cyber-attacks. This trend is getting stronger year by year and businesses need to develop strategies in order to create solid infrastructures to be protected against this increasing threat.

So far we have many companies threaten by these attacks and the stolen data, downtime and brand image are costing millions for them. Cyber crime costs are projected to quadruple over the next few years and reach £2 trillion by 2019, up from £500 billion in 2015. The World Economic Forum says a significant portion of cyber crime goes undetected, particularly industrial espionage where access to confidential documents and data is difficult to spot.

Ginni Rometty, Chairman, President and CEO at IBM says cyber crime is the greatest threat to every company in the world.

Hackers are working increasingly harder to conquer unauthorized access to a network undetected, these threats are constantly evolving and trained professionals are a very important key in this process  to provide a suitable defence against cyber crime.

Businesses need to invest in knowledge to keep cyber security defences constantly updated.

How can they do this? Making sure they have the best and most experience professionals around to ensure that IT infrastructures are robust and ready to withstand attacks. IT specialists need to ensure that the suitable systems are put in place to make sure businesses are ready and well protected against cyber crime. Its often seen as an unattractive way to spend money, however nowadays cyber security is just as important as paying your bills to ensure that your business can grow and develop.
