Report: The cost of business cybercrime in 2023
In January 2024, Beaming commissioned research consultancy Censuswide to interview UK business leaders about their approaches to cyber security and any breaches that affected their organisations in 2023.
Censuswide spoke to more than 500 leaders from organisations of all sizes, major sectors and UK regions, enabling us to understand how resilient they are to cybercrime today and what happens when cybercriminals succeed.
We’ve shared our findings in this report to provide business leaders with new insight into the current state of cybercrime and help them counter the threat more effectively.
The report includes:
- The rate of cybercrime in 2023
- The cost of cybercrime in 2023
- Which forms did cybercrime take?
