According to LLoyd's (An insurance market company) latest survey, it ranks Cyber Risk as the number three overall risks amongst 500 senior business leaders it surveyed. "It appears that businesses across the world have encountered a partial reality check about the degree of cyber risk. Their sense of preparedness to deal with the level of risk, however, still appears remarkably complacent."[1]

Last year, several well know companies experienced significant breaches such as Yahoo, Verison, Twitter, Google where thousands of users were required to change their passwords. Some of the changes implemented since then include two-factor authentication by Google and Apple to name a few.

Do you think that business executives are more aware now of the reality of cyber attacks?
