The cost to organisations can include business disruption, loss of sales and recovery of assets. Unveiled at the Infosec conference in London this week, the 2015 Information Security Breaches Report found that nine in ten organisations have been victim to some kind of security breach over the past year – an increase from 81% the previous year in 2014.

The research found that 74% of small businesses were affected by a breach of some description, this is up from 60% a year ago. The cost to a small business from a serious breach was found to be up to double, from £311,000, up from £115,000 a year ago.

The report found that the number of external attacks on large organisations in the UK had increased by a significant number. Research also revealed that a percentage of large organisations suffered a security breach relating to social networking sites and the percentage of large firms reporting an incident involving tablets and smartphones, had doubled.
