Cyber criminals are targeting small businesses. It’s important to understand the key threats and proactively keep these out of the workplace.
We often hear about large-scale cyber-attacks in large organisations, but cybercriminals are not letting SMBs off the hook. It’s been reported that 1 in 40 small businesses are at risk of becoming a victim of cybercrime. Unfortunately, it’s often the case that small businesses are ill-equipped when it comes to cyber security. This can usually be caused by lack of understanding, awareness and lack of resource.
Take action against cybercrime
As we near the end of 2016, it’s advisable for businesses to reflect on this turbulent year of cyber security breaches. These cyber-attacks clearly demonstrate the growing dangers of the online world, which is something that no business can avoid.
To keep your small business secure, start by improving your awareness. If you understand the threats targeting your business it’s easier to prioritise solutions to build a well-rounded cyber security strategy.
Prepare your business for 2017
Looking ahead to next year, don’t make the mistake of overlooking cyber security. With new regulations such as the impending GDPR, it’s no longer possible to hide from cybercrime and the implications of a cyber breach. Don’t head into 2017 without a cyber security shield around your business.
