Over 70% of critical national infrastructure (CNI) providers in the UK have seen an increase in cyberattacks since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, new research from Bridewell suggests.

Bridewell, a security services provider, polled over 520 security decision-makers in the communications, utilities, finance, government and transport and aviation sectors in order to better understand their concerns and exposure to cyber threats.

78% of those polled said they were worried about the threat of cyberattacks against the UK’s CNI, likely due to the surge of attacks since the Russia’s recent invasion of Ukraine.

10% said they were concerned their team would not be able to cope with an attack.
