There is a growing disconnect within UK PLC between understanding a problem exists and actually doing anything to fix it
According to new research, there has been a two percent increase in the number of UK businesses that have unknown devices on their networks. This may not sound like much, but it represents an additional 110,000 organisations that are at risk compared to last year and means that nearly half (49 percent) believe there are unknown, third-party, devices on their networks. Yet some 85 percent of the CIOs and IT decision makers questioned said this poses a security risk to the organisation. That 2.8 million UK businesses are leaving themselves open to this lack of IoT visibility and control risk begs the question of what the strategic business mentality at play behind this actually is.
