Cyber-attacks in the UK spiralled upwards by 140% in 2018, according to a recent cyber-threat landscape report. According to the paper, a rise in botnet activity also saw 40% of small and mid-sized businesses impacted by at least one cyber-attack over the 12-month period. A new study from computer and network security company eSentire has found that cyber-attacks in the UK spiked by a colossal margin over the course of last year. According to the study, Britain was stung by 140% more cyber-attacks than the year previous, something driven chiefly by a global increase in botnet activity. This increase in attack traffic also caused nearly 40% of small and medium enterprises in the UK to experience at least one cybersecurity incident.
