Talk Talk has been fined 400k by the ICO for its cyber security negligence.
Add that to the compensation it has had to pay to affected customers, the reputation damage and consequent drop in share price and you can estimate that the total cost must be in the millions of pounds.
Just taking the 400k as a Base cost, this would probably have been more than enough to pay for award-winning Abatis-HDF to secure their infrastructure.
Abatis, winner of the Innovative Product of the Year in the 2015 Cyber Security Awards, is a British zero-day defence which stops malware infection and protects against hacker attacks. It defends against RansomWare including Cryptolocker and achieves an average 7% energy saving capability compared with less effective anti-malware technologies.
Successfully validated by Lockheed Martin who compared anti-virus products against the Host Integrity Technology (HIT); Abatis showed it to be more effective in industry tests.
This application has been shown to be more effective in an industry test than 8 household name AVs and has been successfully validated by Lockheed Martin NCITE UK in a previous trial.
