Insurance and underwriting firm Hiscox recently established in their new report called “Cyber Readiness” that as high as 73% of organizations are still ill-equipped to prevent cyber attacks.

Based on the answers of decision makers in 4,100 organisations from UK, USA, Germany, the Netherlands, and Spain, it was shown that a contributor to the problem is the lack of cybersecurity professionals.

Former GCHQ director and Hiscox advisor Robert Hannigan says that he expects the problem to continue as cyber criminals get access to more sophisticated tools and IoT devices with minimal security rapidly proliferate.
