Welcome to the April 2015 Newsletter.

Recent high-profile hacking attacks and data breaches, such as those affecting Sony, Netflix, health insurer Anthem and parking ticket website PaymyPCN.net have served to substantially increase public and business concerns about the real-world implications of cyber crime.

With growing numbers of hacking attacks aimed at harvesting valuable data, such as healthcare records and credit card numbers, the public are increasingly feeling the full effects of data misuse, as well as the companies being breached. Public concern has risen by 60% regarding cybercrime and the impact it will have on personal income, credit ratings, access to public services and business productivity, as well as the time and hassle involved in untangling the mess caused by fraud, ID theft and data misuse.

It is timely then that GFI Software has released the findings of a major independent blind study into the cyber security concerns of the general public. The research, commissioned by GFI and carried out by Opinion Matters among over 1,000 office workers in the UK, reveals stark concerns about the rise of cybercrime and its impact on society and the business world.
