The threat of a cyber attack is growing as criminals find new ways to expose and steal data. One of the most high profile attacks during 2016 was Dyn DDoS, which saw hackers reportedly take over internet of things (IoT) devices and use them to launch a DDoS attack on hosting provider Dyn. It resulted in multiple sites being taken down including Twitter, Paypal and the PlayStation Network.

Meanwhile, the financial sector suffered a major breach when Tesco Bank was targeted in a hack that saw 40,000 customers affected. The attacker stole money totalling £2.5 million directly from users’ bank accounts.
