The government’s 2016 Cyber Security Breaches Survey found that the majority of medium-sized businesses have some cyber security controls in place, but these "fall short of best-practice standards".
As cyber attacks continue to increase in scale and severity, this is obviously a concern. Medium–sized businesses have more to lose, and the degree of separation between management and operations is often just enough for cyber attackers to successfully exploit.
According to Ponemon Institute’s 2016 State of Cybersecurity in Small & Medium–Sized Businesses report, 60% of respondents say their organisations "do not have the budget" and another 69% of respondents "do not have the in-house expertise adequate for achieving a strong cybersecurity posture".
