A construction contractor with a £2 million turnover was recently a victim of a cyber attack. Several of its employees clicked on a seemingly innocent link contained in an email that appeared to have been sent from an authentic source. Their system was immediately infected with Crypto Locked Malware which prevented users accessing their data. Although the network was down for less than a day, the cost to the business was £50,000. That’s 2.5% of annual turnover gone in the blink of an eye.
