UK companies are still refusing to report cyber-crime in the workplace.
According to a survey by security consultant Defcom, firms are deciding to protect their reputations rather than report hacking to the police.
More than two thirds of those surveyed cited a risk to corporate image as the reason for not disclosing cyber-crime.
Defcom said that typical unreported security breaches include fairly trivial incidents, such as the defacement of corporate websites, to more serious hacking attempts on databases, according to the BBC.
Nearly half of company directors are not even made aware of security breaches, and 80 per cent of firms rely on employees to keep themselves up-to-date with computer security procedures and policies.
