90% Of Breaches Are Caused By Human Error

Human error caused 90% of cyber data breaches in 2019, according to  analysis of data from the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) carried out by CybSafe. According to their analysis, nine out of 10 of the 2376 cyber-breaches reported to the ICO last year were caused by mistakes made by end-users.

This is a significant increase from the previous two years, when 61% and 87% of cyber-breaches were ascribed to user error in 2017 and 2018 respectively.

CybSafe cited phishing as the primary cause of breaches in 2019, accounting for 45% of all reports to the ICO. ‘Unauthorised Access’ was the next most common cause of cyber-breaches in 2019, with reports relating to malware or ransomware, hardware/software misconfiguration and brute force password attacks also noted.... As this analysis shows, it’s almost always human error that enables attackers to access encrypted channels and sensitive information" siad Oz Alashe, CEO of CybSafe.

Security Incidents In Public Cloud Infrastructure

The cloud has enabled businesses to improve the agility of their IT infrastructure and the reliability of their services as well as increase their ability to deliver new products and services faster. As many organisations are digitising their operations, the popularity of the cloud has risen rapidly amongst both enterprises and small to medium-sized businesses (SMEs).

A recent report from Kaspersky Lab has revealed that security incidents in public cloud infrastructure are more likely to occur as a result of a customer's employees rather than by actions carried out by cloud providers.

According to Kaspersky's research, over a third of both SMB and enterprise companies are concerned about incidents affecting IT infrastructure hosted by a third party which could make the benefits of cloud redundant and carry commercial and reputational risks.
