In 2015, 74% of small organisations experienced a security breach, up from 60% just a year before. To put things into perspective, the average cost of these attacks ranged from £75,000 and £311,000.
Not every business is facing immediate cyber threats, but we all have to remain proactive in protecting our businesses to make sure we stay amongst the unaffected. After all, those that fail to prepare get hit the hardest.
We are ALL responsible for minimising weaknesses in our infrastructures so that we can focus on our business priorities such as productivity and growth.
So, what can you do to protect your business?
