UK business is sleepwalking

UK business is sleepwalking into dependence on IT as the gap widens between increased cyber risks and the measures employed to manage them, according to Aon's 2007 Risk Report. The report identified that the risk to company data was growing, both in terms of the number of incidents and their severity. With the UK government estimating that computer crime is costing £2.5bn every year, Aon is urging businesses to identify and take steps to mitigate IT risks.
