Connor Jones. 24 Apr, 2019. Alt Text. Office workplace security. British businesses are neglecting cyber security investment, spending on average around £500,000 less than other global economic powerhouses. UK firms spend on average $900,000 on cyber security annually compared to the $1.4 million total average, according to Hiscox Insurance's latest Cyber Readiness Report. But, it's looking increasingly unlikely that firms can sustain this level of negligence when figures from the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) say that the cost of each cyber attack has quadrupled since last year . In a review of 5,400 small, medium and large enterprises in the UK, US, Belgium, France, Netherlands and Spain, around 75% of all businesses

The Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham has pointed out a gap in the government's white paper on online harms. The head of the ICO said she was "surprised and disappointed" that there wasn't more focus on adverts using disinformation to influence elections, which she called "significant online harm". The UK government released a long-awaited 'Online Harms' white paper earlier in April, which set out a regulatory framework for penalising tech companies and social media platforms that failed to tackle the spread of harmful and extremist content online.

Apple is spending more money on AWS cloud than any of its competitors, splashing out on average $30m a month on Amazon's services. According to CNBC , the company has signed up to a multi-year agreement with the cloud giant, although this may only be a stop-gap until Apple has finished building its own cloud-based infrastructure. Although AWS and Apple could be viewed as competitors, Apple wants to make sure its customers are serviced as reliably and as fast as possible when using cloud-based services such as iCloud and it has, therefore, turned to what it thinks is the best in the business to do so.
