Cyber Security worldwide
Based on 500 hundred interviews with IT decision-makers in enterprise-sized organisations across seven countries and four major sectors - finance, pharmaceutical, retail and government - BT’s research assesses attitudes to cyber security, emerging threats and levels of preparedness.

Attitudes to threats vary significantly from country to country, according to the BT research. US and UK organisations fear non-malicious insider threats above other risks – but hacktivism is more of a worry to firms in America than in Britain.
And there are wide differences from sector to sector, too. 43% of retail CEOs see cyber security as a priority, compared to just 28 per cent in pharma.
