Easy steps to improve cyber security within your organisation
Small and medium-sized businesses make up almost the entirety of the UK’s private sector. Among those businesses, the statistics of how many reported at least one cyber attack in the previous 12 months is stunning – 38% of micro firms, 52% of small firms, and 66% of medium firms. This roughly translates into a 1 in 2 chance that your small or medium-sized organisation will experience a security breach. And with the G.D.P.R. legislation going into effect from May 2018, you are at risk of a large fine being levied against your business should you fail to properly protect customer data.
While you can never completely eliminate the element of risk, there are simple steps your organisation can take to protect your data. The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has released a simple, easy to understand guide with tips plus a free downloadable graphic to help you implement these suggested steps.
