Why are cyber attacks on the rise?
- They are easy to carry out, a hacker doesn’t have to leave the house and UK businesses can be targeted from pretty much anywhere in the world
- Even people with very little technical expertise can purchase attacks and tools. A week’s worth of disruption from a DDoS attack could cost as little as $150
- Businesses are more reliant than ever on the communication and information that online services facilitate. As businesses become more reliant on technology, disruption becomes more effective.
- Compared to traditional forms of crime such as burglary, cyber crime takes far less effort but can still have a big impact, making it more appealing to modern criminals.
