Cyber crime is affecting more and more businesses each day
The rise of cyber crime is hardly out of the news nowadays and the threat of an attack is a real issue for businesses. Unfortunately, an attack is not a matter of if but of when if you are not adequately protected, resulting in potentially thousands of pounds in loss of business and data.
What would the outcome be if one or all of the following happened:
- Your company data was encrypted?
- Your customers' data is stolen?
- You couldn’t access email or business critical data?
And with the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018, it is even more important that your business and data are not compromised in the event of an attack.
Cyber criminals don't just attack banks and large companies - they target any organisation that isn't properly protected – even small businesses – and the majority of cyber attacks exploit basic weaknesses in IT systems and software.
