Just 30 percent of UK companies experienced a security breach in 2015

Security breach

Almost a half (43 percent) of UK companies did not experience a security breach in 2015, a new report suggests. Released by IT management software provider SolarWinds, it includes answers from 109 IT practitioners and managers from small, medium-sized and large UK companies.

According to them, just 30 percent suffered a breach last year. Quite surprising.

More than a third (39 percent) said they feel less vulnerable than they did a year ago, while 27 percent said they felt more vulnerable. The time needed to detect a threat decreased for 42 percent of companies, while 18 percent said it increased.

And finally, 38 percent said the time needed to respond to a threat also decreased, while for 28 percent it increased.

"The most surprising finding of the survey is just how many UK organizations are less vulnerable today than they were a year ago, and, on a related note, how many have implemented security technologies and better security training", said Mav Turner, director for Business Strategy at SolarWinds.

"While this is a sign the industry is trending in the right direction, it’s important for IT professionals to never get too confident in their organizations’ security posture, which could potentially result in overestimating one’s defenses. After all, the findings also illustrate how high the stakes are—while less than one-third of UK organizations experienced a security breach in 2015, of those, 77 percent store potentially sensitive customer data".
