Research shows UK Government not meeting cyber crime protection expectations

Network Box : 16 December, 2008  (Technical Article)
British businesses believe that the UK Government could do more to protect them from the growing threat of cyber crime according to research undertaken by Network Box
Eighty per cent of businesses believe the government is not doing enough to protect the UK's national infrastructure from cyber threats, according to research from managed security firm, Network Box.

This year's follow up enquiry by the House of Lords to its 2007 report on Internet Security called for increased measures by government to protect the UK from cyber threats, including greater international co-operation.

But Network Box's research shows that this is not enough to allay the concerns of businesses, says Simon Heron, Internet Security Analyst at Network Box: "The world of cyber crime moves quickly. Our research showed that businesses don't think government is responding accordingly."

The research showed that 61 per cent of businesses believe that malware downloaded via the Internet is the single biggest threat to security.

Heron says: "We continue to advise that companies need to provide protection to employees surfing the Internet, as they have with their email, to prevent malware being downloaded from websites. Unfortunately, this is treating the symptom, not the cause, and governments worldwide need to work together to combat this menace."

Network Box surveyed 250 UK businesses in December 2008.
