Almost 50% of UK businesses have identified a cybersecurity breach or attack in the past year, according to a new government report.

The Cybersecurity Breaches Survey, published today, shows that cybersecurity continues to be an issue affecting UK businesses of all sizes and operating across all different sectors.
