2015 has seen many unprecedented cyber attacks such as the recent Talk Talk and Ashley Madison data breach earlier in the year. We have seen the sophistication and scale of attacks evolving throughout this year with no sign of stopping or slowing down.
Alarmists have cautioned 2016 as the beginning of international cyber warfare and inter country cyber espionage, forming the early stages of cybergeddon.
