Despite UK businesses doubling spend on security budgets, companies are still in the dark as to how many cyber-attacks are hitting their business, according to a recent PwC survey. The cost of security incidents are rising and the volume of attacks are also increasing. No longer can physical and cyber security be looked at separately since an attack on an organisation's systems can cause physical infrastructure to fail.
Following the £1.9b cyber strategy outlined by the Chancellor Philip Hammond, UK Security Expo will demonstrate the importance of integrating cyber solutions with physical security technologies.
Kevin Duffey, Managing Director, Cyber Rescue, forecasts that "News coverage of cyber attacks on business will quadruple, as every successful attack will fuel further crime, while regulators will require notification when attacks get through. CEOs will demand that Security Directors earn their pay, by leading on business continuity and risk mitigation against cyber attacks."
Peter Jones, Chief Executive, Nineteen Events added "Security Directors already face a colossal challenge in tackling a broad spectrum of threats in keeping their operations, assets and people safe and secure. UK Security Expo offers case studies, discussions, debate, an interactive workshop plus a showcase of products to help them face up to the challenge ahead."
