Employees Express Cyber Attack Fears

February 8, 20192min

The UK’s employers are failing to earn the trust of staff when it comes to dealing with cyber attacks, new research shows.

The findings from insurance governance experts Mactavish reveals 43 percent of senior executives and managers believe their employers have suffered at least one cyber-attack in the past two years.

However, only 31 percent of those who said this thought it had been dealt with ‘very well’. Just over one-in-five (21 percent) thought they dealt with it ‘poorly’.

The findings also reveal that less than half (48 percent) of senior executives and managers feel their employers are not worried about cyber-attacks, and this helps explain why just 51 percent believe the organisations they work for have good strategies in place for dealing with cyber-attacks. Some 13 percent described their strategies here as ‘poor’,  and 30 percent as ‘average’.

Bruce Hepburn, CEO of Mactavish said: “The chances of suffering from a cyber attack are increasing, but our research suggests many employers are not taking this growing risk seriously enough. Given this, it is fair to assume that many have also not reviewed their insurance policies to make sure they have adequate cover here.”
