A Government survey of the FTSE 350 has revealed 68% of board members have not been trained to deal with cybersecurity incidents, potentially leaving their businesses in danger.
More than half of board members recognise that cyber threats are a top risk to their business but 69% of them still do not receive comprehensive information on that risk.
The Government is urging businesses to collaborate with the National Cyber Security Centre to develop methods to protect themselves from the economic effects of a successful cyberattack.
Matt Hancock MP, the minister for digital, said that recent incidents had shown "the devastating effects of not getting our approach to cyber security right" and added that the UK has "a long way to go until all our organisations are adopting best practice".
Firms involved in energy, transport and health are now also facing multimillion-pound fines under proposals which will require them to have strong cybersecurity measures in place.
The suggested fines are aimed at preventing hackers from crippling networks, as happened earlier in the summer with NHS systems.
