IT’S A CLICHÉ to say the internet is everywhere - but it’s true. The numbers are simply staggering. The Social Revolution on YouTube claims there are 9 billion connected devices worldwide at the moment and that will increase to 24 billion in the next eight years.

So it is no wonder that cyber risks have moved up the agenda.
