With the UK in turmoil over Brexit, businesses are expected to face new challenges as the UK faces many uncertainties. The result of Brexit is set to significantly impact cybersecurity.
As the UK prepares to leave the EU the issue of cybersecurity will become more complex and increasingly difficult. As the data, the UK shares with the EU currently on information systems could fail to happen. This could expose the UK to possible threats from cybercriminals giving them a prime opportunity to target people and their businesses.
These criminals will take advantage of the fact that businesses will be focusing on the transitional issues they may face from the outcome of Brexit. Not ensuring you are prepared against these threats can have huge consequences on your business.
“58% of UK businesses can’t detect IT security breaches and 40% of SMEs wouldn’t know who to contact in the event of cybercrime. The introduction of GDPR means that businesses are directly responsible for the protection of their client's data and they can incur massive fines if they are negligent.”(https://goo.gl/dGJhe2)
