Theresa May’s Recent Speech Highlights the Importance of Cyber Security

Theresa May’s Recent Speech Highlights the Importance of Cyber Security

Just yesterday, Teresa May released a bold statement accusing Russia of meddling in elections and carrying out cyber espionage. She claimed she had reason to believe they have been “planting fake stories” to “sow discord in the West”.

The Prime Minister said there have been several occasions that it has been proved that Russia have had some involvement in these covert cyber activities.

“Russia has repeatedly violated the national airspace of several European countries and mounted a sustained campaign of cyber espionage and disruption”

“We know what you are doing and you will not succeed. Because you underestimate the resilience of our democracies, the enduring attraction of free and open societies and the commitment of Western nations to the alliances that bind us.”

This statement raises many concerns, and may encourage more companies and individuals to consider the importance of cyber security. It is estimated that only half of UK companies have a good understanding of the importance of cyber security. On top of this, only one third (33%) of responding businesses make investment decisions on their cyber security at Board level. This lack of importance and acknowledgement raises risks to the company.

After Theresa May’s statement, we can only hope that people’s eyes and ears will be opened as they understand the significance and consequences of cyber attacks. This may not only include risking data leaks and subsequent fraudulent activity – but also can be detrimental to a company’s reputation.
