More than half (57%) of UK businesses have been impacted because of a cyber security/information security incident caused by a third-party vendor or supply chain partner, according to new research published by ISMS.online.
The report found that nearly one in three (30%) businesses cite managing vendor and third-party risk as a top information security challenge, with average fines following a data breach or violation of data protection at £237,402.
This report closely follows the warnings by the newly appointed Deputy Prime Minister Oliver Dowden about incoming attacks targeting critical national infrastructure and supply chains.
