Hewlett-Packard (HP), the ink cartridge manufacturer and computer maker, has revealed that cyber attacks are a growing threat to businesses and government organisations.

The firm's second annual Cost of Cyber Crime Study, conducted by the Ponemon Institute, revealed that the average cost of threats against companies has increased by 56 per cent since last year.

Tom Reilly, vice president and general manager in enterprise security at HP, said: "Instances of cybercrime have continued to increase in both frequency and sophistication, with the potential impact to an organisation’s financial health becoming more substantial."

He added that the most affected firms are those that have reduced their security and risk management technologies.

Ink cartridge company HP recently released its latest multifunction laser printer range with its LaserJet Pro 100 colour multifunctional product, M175nw, which it claims is perfect for small and medium-sized businesses.

The firm noted its latest product can help improve print, copy and scanning capabilities for various companies.
