LONDON, June 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --A A 

IT experts are concerned about 'untrained and malicious users' an average of 125% over other threats

Almost two-thirds (63%) of organisations are concerned about having adequate budget for cybersecurity

Credential compromise ranks as the top cyber attack concern

KnowBe4, provider of the world's largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platform, has recently released the findings of 'The 2020 What Keeps You Up at Night Report". Following on the success of last year's global report, this year, KnowBe4 delves into the issues that specifically trouble UK-based organisations and IT experts. This includes attack types, security initiatives as well as organisational constraints. Moreover, an in-depth analysis examines just how prepared these organisations are in managing such cyber threats, risks and concerns. The report compiled information gathered from interviews with nearly 200 organisations across twelve different industries in the UK. It was found that, despite feeling confident in their organisation's security posture, many respondents, somewhat contradictorily, continued to express significant concerns. Indeed, an overwhelming majority (96%) of respondents believe that their organisations have either a 'proactive' or 'mature' security strategy in place. An additional 71% believe that their organisation has a well-established security culture or that their employees have adopted good cybersecurity behaviours. Yet, 48% of organisations were still concerned to some degree towards at least one of the security issues raised.
