A third of UK corporates open to hackers

A third of UK companies and public sector organisations are ‘wide open’ to hackers because they are ignoring basic security flaws, industry experts have warned.


According to security firm NTA Monitor, UK businesses are drowning under a rising tide of medium and low-level security vulnerabilities as they fight to deal with high-risk security flaws.


The company’s research – based on analysis of almost 500 network perimeter security tests of clients in both the public and private sector – found that a third of corporate networks have at least 10 flaws, opening themselves to “considerable risk of malicious attack”.
