Cyber Security A Priority For All Businesses In 2024

CYBER SECURITY EVENTS LIKE NO OTHER

Cyber-attacks are growing in number and sophistication, making security a priority for all businesses in 2024. The cost of a cyber-attack can be huge, with an average breach amounting to $4.45 million – a 15% increase over the last three years, according to an IBM and Ponemon Institute report. The cost for organisations operating in the healthcare industry and finance is even higher, at $10.93 million and $5.9 million respectively.

IBM and the Ponemon Institute found that 51% of organisations are planning to increase security investments as a result of a breach, including incident response planning and testing, employee training, and threat detection and response tools.

Many cyber-attacks are the result of human error, with employees mistakenly clicking on links contained in phishing emails or downloading malware inadvertently. Verizon’s 2023 Data Breach Investigations Report found that the human element is the common attack vector, causing of 74% of all data breaches.

This is set against a backdrop of a growing skills shortage in cyber security, with 4 million people still needed globally to fill the gap, according to ISC2. This is made worse by the fact that 71% of organisations have unfilled cybersecurity positions, according to ISACA.

Supply Chain Attacks And Generative AI Risk

It comes at a time when supply chain attacks increasingly offer attackers a route into businesses. Supply chain breaches affect businesses of all sizes, with 45% of firms expected to become a victim of this type of attack by 2025, according to analyst Gartner.

Take the example of the MOVEit vulnerability from 2023, the SolarWinds breach, or the infamous Log4j issue that still plagues firms today.

New technology also poses a growing risk. Generative AI can offer an efficiency boost and even improve security, but the technology is also offering opportunity for attack.

According to a McKinsey Global Survey on AI, 40% of organisations plan to increase their overall AI investment because of advancements in gen AI. Yet few companies seem fully prepared for the widespread use of gen AI — or the business risks these tools may bring: 53% of firms acknowledge cyber security as a gen AI-related risk, but only 38% are working to mitigate this.
