As we all know a lot of large businesses and small have recently been the victims of online hackers. This causing huge sums of money spent on more secure forms of website security.
Online hackers won't stop, they hide behind a screen and are 'clever' in their ways of tapping in to some of the largest businesses in the world, we have recently seen the hacking of two large organisations; Sony and Yahoo. Alongside many more.
Today ITV news has announced that the Queen herself will be opening a new HQ Cyber Security centre to try and prevent hackers. Businesses are warned that they are not fully prepared for the rising threat of hackers and that this £1.9 billion investment will save businesses money in investing in expensive online security.
The centre is said to work with the industry to 'tighten security'. It is said that:
- There have been 188 cyber attacks on businesses in the last three months.
- 9/10 have said to lack in management plans of cyber security.
Not that I think the Queen will know much about online cyber security, but hey ho lets give her a chance....
