  3. A serious breach could prevent your business from operating and reputational damage is often irrevocable.
  4. The average time to detect a breach for most businesses is six months.
  5. The ICO requires you to process data securely and report breaches within 72 hours.
  6. Most business or cyber insurance policies insist upon a breach detection capability.
  7. Your customers (or your supply shain) may request you have a breach detection capability.
  8. Your own industry regulations may require you to have breach detection capability in place.
  9. For most business, the cost of implementing a comprehensive breach detection capability is far outweighed by the monetary risk.
