UK IT Leaders Concerned About Cyber Warfare, Government Response

Half of UK IT leaders lack trust in government's cyber defense.

Over half (52%) of UK IT leaders believe the government cannot defend its citizens and enterprises against an act of cyberwarfare.

According to a survey of over 2,600 global security and IT decision-makers by Armis Labs, 56% of UK IT leaders are concerned about the threat of cyberwarfare, but only 27% have a plan in place to handle such a threat.

Also, 46% of those surveyed in the UK say geopolitical tensions with China and Russia have created a greater threat of cyberwarfare.

When asked if IT leaders experienced more threat activity on their network in the past six months, only saw an increase, but this rises to 37% for utilities organisations seeing an increase in attacks and 42% for those in the medical, healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors.
