ICO Trends Dashboard Insights

I decided it was a good time to learn docker and actually make a project that uses it, so I created ICO Security Trends, a small and unique dashboard which uses the UK ICO published spreadsheets to produce graphs and insight into the data.

I thought I would include some of my findings which are not immediately evident on the BI Dashboard they provide,

UK ICO Incident Security Trends

  • Categorisation on incidents described as ‘Other non-cyber incident’ has declined from 2019 to 2022. Roughly on average there are 750 incidents a quarter for ‘Other non-cyber incident[s]’, while ‘Other cyber-incidents’ remain fairly constant at around 60 a quarter.
  • The ‘Other non-cyber incident’ is generally too broad and should potentially be broken down. Insights into trends in this area are potentially being missed.
  • Ransomware disclosure has increased since 2019, which concides with general industry concensus.

There’s a lot more to it, but I thought I’d get it out there already,
