Cyber attacks are on the rise

Cyber-attacks are on the rise, and unfortunately the lack of awareness in smaller businesses, and the ‘it won’t happen to me mindset,’ means that they have become an increasingly attractive target for cybercriminals. Given their size, it’s unusual to find an SME that has access to a dedicated specialist IT team, equipped with the skills and experience necessary to deal with complex data breaches, meaning they are especially vulnerable. The consequences from this lack of preparation can be catastrophic, with reputations at risk as well as potential legal damage. (How to save a business from a cyber-attack, Adam Kobeissi)

Would you be surprised to learn that around 54% of small and medium sized businesses like yours were breached last year? Global ransomware attacks aren’t just a threat to large, multi-national companies: 58% of malware attack victims are categorised as small businesses.

Could your business be next?

Attacks on small businesses are on the rise, from 55% experiencing them in 2016 to 61% in 2017. And 60% of small businesses say attacks are becoming increasingly severe and sophisticated.

Are you making it easy for cyber criminals to attack?

Not many small businesses have the budget for dedicated IT staff – and 47% don’t understand how to protect against cyber-attacks – which makes them even more vulnerable to online threats. But with the right tech backing you up, it doesn’t have to end in a breach.
