Companies all over the world need to be more aware of cybersecurity threats, mainly from hackers, malware and viruses, according to a report from think tank Chatham House.

That report found responsibility should rest with upper-level managers, and board-level bosses. It also recommends the government act as a clearing house of information.

The report was commissioned by a subsidiary of BAE systems, especially for the UK's national infrastructure and comes as the UK government is expected to make a major cybersecurity announcement in the next few days.
