In Australia, Cybercrime affects 33% of businesses each year. In terms of raw stats, the effects of a cyberattack vary between business disruptions, which affect 40% of business, information loss – 29%, revenue loss – 25%, productivity loss – 29%, all the way through to equipment damage, which affects 4% of business.
Shockingly, it can take the average businesses 23 days to recover from a full cyberattack. If it is an ‘insider’ attack, the number of days to recover soars to a debilitating 51 days.
It’s true that in most cases, employees remain your greatest risk when it comes to cyber security.
