"We know that if you do fairly basic cyber security ... then you're going to protect yourselves

But even basic cyber security costs money, and until the bosses & bean-counters understand the need to finance IT properly then nothing will change. Make it a criminal offence to pay a ransomware demand, outlaw insurance policies that offer that, and make the case for proper IT funding instead. Maybe even outsource less and keep security in-house?

Ok, dreaming over. Back on your heads.
