We are now heavily reliant on the Internet to interact and sell to customers.
Businesses are providing employees and partners with online access to their systems and storing data in the cloud.
As the significance of the Internet has grown so has the ability of cyber criminals to attack. Driven by the increasing value placed upon data, which is now a highly-prized commodity across the world.
The scale of the threat is rising every day organised gangs, nation states and even script-kiddies world-wide are targeting some of the world’s largest and smallest firms.
