Each week, The Open University and BBC Radio 4 come together to grill the people who run the businesses that shape the world.

For this edition, the focus is keeping business safe from hackers.

Many companies now feel besieged by constant attacks and few can claim not to have been targeted. In the first of a new series of the award-winning The Bottom Line Evan Davis and guests discuss the anatomy of a cyber attack - where the threats are coming from and how best to respond. And they'll ask - should businesses be more honest about the security breaches they've faced?
