Guide to Security
Every business faces a very real and serious threat from cyber criminals. In fact, cyber crime now accounts for almost half of all crimes reported in the UK. A UK Government survey found that 43% of business had experienced a cyber breach in the past 12 months.
Cyber attacks come in all forms, whether that be hacking into systems and harvesting sensitive data or utilising phishing, malware or ransomware attacks to maliciously disrupt organisations. The threat is particularly high amongst small to mid-sized businesses where cyber criminals perceive there to be fewer defences in place than larger corporates.
This guide explores the threats that businesses face and some of the simple steps that can be taken to help reduce and mitigate areas of vulnerability.
