Home security Personal data is increasingly at risk

Personal data is increasingly at risk

As the cybersecurity expert warns Kingsley Hayes, The danger a vertical increase in data breach cases is greatly increased. This theory is certainly valid if we consider that now 4,5 billion people or 59% of the world's population spend a lot of time connected to Internet. And their data is much more exposed to cyber criminals.


The companies that deal with safety at cyberspace, have stated that despite the global effort being made to combat cybercrime, with expected global spending reaching $ 1 trillion, experts do not see adequate levels of investment.

Kingsley Hayes, in charge Keller Lenkner UK in the field of data security, he commented: "Businesses in all sectors will face great and varied challenges, as we all face this unforeseen threat. Covid-19. Although many may struggle to survive, the protection data must remain a top priority. "This is very important to do as soon as possible, as a significant number of employees work from home."

"Companies in all sectors need to act now to protect their customers' data and therefore protect their business."

"The latest data from Office of the Information Commissioner (ICO) show that the total number of reported cases was almost halved in the first quarter of 2020/2021. "

"While seemingly showing a positive trend, it is more likely that the significant drop is due to unreported data breaches, as normal infrastructure and work practices continue to be disrupted by pandemic. "

"The electronic fishing is the biggest risk in cyberspace, accounting for almost 45% of all events recorded in the last quarter. Human error was responsible for more than 71% of all reported incidents. The most common mistake was to send personal information to the wrong email recipient. "

"The pandemic, the failure of businesses to invest adequately in mitigating data protection risks, and the growing reliance on technology are a perfect recipe for data breaches."
