According to a regional survey, managers of Hungarian companies are not sufficiently prepared for a possible cyber attack: only 17% of companies have a cyber security policy or procedures in case of a cyber attack, writes hrportal.hu. 

According to the survey conducted by the independent research institute Call to Action Hungary on behalf of the information security company Sophos, Hungarian companies are in a much worse position than the Czechs or the Poles. 

The research among 400 senior managers working at small, medium, and large companies in all three countries, found businesses also pay little attention to cyber security training. 

At large companies, almost 70% of managers, directors, or board members have not received such training. For medium-sized companies, this ratio reached 85%. 

While 80% of respondents in Hungary were not trained, 57% of respondents in the Czech Republic did not receive cyber security training, and only 28% were trained in Poland.
