UK manufacturers are feeling the cybersecurity heat

he UK ’ s manufacturing sector

T has been severely tested by cybersecurity attacks since the start of the pandemic , according to new research by Keeper Security . In fact , the 2021 Cybersecurity Census Report found the average manufacturing company experienced 30 cyberattacks during the past year alone , with 85 % expecting that figure to increase over the coming 12 months .

It ’ s clear that the pandemic had a large impact on the manufacturing sector when it comes to cybersecurity , with nearly a third ( 30 %) of manufacturers experiencing disruption to trade through successful cyberattacks and 28 % also suffering disruption to supply chains . The effect of the pandemic has also resulted in businesses focusing their priorities across a host of different areas , with budgets pulled in multiple directions and only 39 % of senior IT leaders able to prioritise IT as their number one investment .
This has led to gaps in cybersecurity provision , ranging from a lack of necessary skills to poor security hygiene . According to the research ,
60 % of employees don ’ t understand the cybersecurity implications of poor password hygiene . Just 24 % also admit that they lack the skills to deal with cyberattacks and 58 % believe the UK has a skills shortage among IT workers , directly impacting their company ’ s cybersecurity .
