GDPR has driven improved cyber resilience

The introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has made more UK businesses more resilient to cyber risk, the UK government has said in its latest annual cybersecurity breach survey.

Survey was carried out in the final three months of 2018. The government asked 1,566 UK businesses if they had experienced cybersecurity breaches or attacks within the previous 12 months. In response, 32% of businesses said they had, down from the 43% that said they had experienced such incidents in last year’s survey.
