Only one-third of cyber-attacks in UK are reported to police

Technology - Survey shows almost 1,000 members suffered a cyberattack in the past year - SantanderCB

The Institute of Directors has released the results of a survey of almost 1,000 of its members which shows that a quarter have suffered a cyberattack in the past year, but just 28% of those 250 directors went on to report the matter to police. That was in spite of half the attacks resulting in interruption to business. The IoD even warned that the true scale of attacks could be much higher, as directors may be unaware of a crime having taken place, or may not define other cyber incidents or data losses as attacks. The IoD's research also identified that only 43% of the firms polled are aware of where their data is physically stored.
