With so many companies being subjected to cyber-attacks, this is obviously becoming a massive concern to lots of businesses in the UK. The most recent issue being with Talk Talk, which was a national news story.
Talk Talk looked into what happened and released numerous reports. Since the first report, it has been updated that it appears to have been their website that was hacked not the serves containing the customer information, so they are confident that little financial information has been compromised. However this does reiterate the importance of security when it comes to business systems, especially those storing sensitive data. Always ensure that all software used for your business is up to date and that you have firewalls in place that are adequate to prevent a cyber-attack.
