UK: Information Security Breaches Survey 2015

Source: Department for Business, Innovation and Skills via GOV.UK

From Executive Summary:

There has been an increase in the number of both large and small organisations experiencing breaches, reversing the slight decrease found in last year’s report. 90% of large organisations reported that they had suffered a security breach, up from 81% in 2014.

Small organisations recorded a similar picture, with nearly three-quarters reporting a security breach; this is an increase on the 2014 and 2013 figures.

The majority of UK businesses surveyed, regardless of size, expect that breaches will continue to increase in the next year. The survey found 59% of respondents expected to see more security incidents.
