Protecting your business against cyber theft is a huge issue facing companies throughout the UK. While a cyber breach may seem like a distant thought for many businesses, ensuring your business is securely protected has never been more important.

Average cost of cyber security breachesFrom British Airways to the NHS, companies of all shapes and sizes are falling victim to cyber crime and the consequences have been debilitating. 380,000 BA customers had their personal details stolen, while ransomware crippled the NHS network resulting in cancellations of critical appointments.

Yet the nature of cyber crime is constantly changing – with companies needing to be aware of internal as well as external threats and, staggeringly, 43% of businesses in the UK have identified cyber security breaches or attacks in the last 12 months. So as attackers become more dangerous and the regulatory environment continues to evolve, basic tools just can’t keep up. A lack of insight across multiple security environments leaves you highly vulnerable to attack.

To combat this, organisations must take precautions and knowing how many threats, how real they are and what the impact would be to your business has never been more important.

IBM Digital Security Case Study: Wimbledon 2017

Known by millions as “Wimbledon”, The Championships is the oldest of tennis’ four Grand Slams, and one of the world’s highest-profile sporting events. Organised by the All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC), Wimbledon has been a global sporting and cultural institution since 1877.

Business challenge: The Wimbledon digital experience is crucial to helping grow the value of the Wimbledon brand by attracting a new “digital native” audience—but it also increases risk from cybercrime.

Transformation: Cognitive and other security technologies enabled analysts to quickly and efficiently identify and address the real threats hidden in nearly 200 million events experienced during the tournament.


  • 60x faster security threat investigations with Watson compared to manual analysis.
  • 5x increase: in volume of security incidents analysed over the course of the tournament
  • Zero breaches that impacted the 2017 Wimbledon website and brand
