Cyber threat warning ; In Brief [Hull Daily Mail (England)]

(Hull Daily Mail (England) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) DIGITAL: Businesses have been warned to be aware of cyber threats to their data.

Speaking at a Humber Business Week event, Mark Brown, the UK and Ireland cyber security assurance leader of advisory services firm EY, said: "Cyber crime is associated with areas such as retail, financial services and the public sector, where security breaches are high-profile, and can involve large amounts of personal and financial information.

"However, we've been seeing a steady increase in both planned and low level opportunistic attacks on businesses operating in the traditional and emerging industries that form important parts of Humberside's economy, such as manufacturing, shipping and energy."
