NCA REPORT: THE CYBER THREAT TO UK BUSINESS 2017/18

The NCA is publishing this report which recognises the most significant incidents from last year, but it also presents case studies where action has led to successful mitigation. It’s been produced with the input of many in government and industry.  The report details some of the biggest cyber attacks from the last year and notes that risks to UK businesses continue to grow. Emerging threats are also highlighted, such as theft from cloud storage and cryptojacking, in which computers are hijacked to create crypto currencies such as bitcoin.  It acknowledges that a basic cyber security posture is no longer enough and most attacks will be defeated by organisations which prioritise cyber security and work closely with government and law enforcement.  The following diagrams are from the report.
