Are you up to date?

A typical organisation loses 5% of revenue each year to fraud, corresponding to annual costs exceeding $3.5 trillion worldwide.

In 2011, the DETICA Report stated that £27 billion was the estimated cost of cyber-crime in the UK.

By 2015, the British insurance company Lloyd’s estimated that cyber-attacks cost businesses as much as $400 billion a year, which included direct damage plus post-attack disruption to the normal course of business.

Only 1 in 10 organisations are confident they have adequate tools, technologies and processes to manage current compliance, risk and security obligations, let alone future challenges.

Amid rising pressures to deliver value while adapting quickly to change, companies need to act swiftly, yet still protect themselves from fraud and cyber-attacks.
