Should Micro Businesses Worry About Cyber Security?
There are over 5.7 million businesses in the UK, according to a survey by Merchant Savvy. 96% are micro businesses, with 0 – 9 employees. The Covid situation has amplified unique challenges and risks faced by micro business owners. A government publication defines cyber security as the activities carried out to protect your computer-based equipment and information from unintended or unauthorised access, change, theft or destruction and it is forever a challenge. Good cyber security can enhance the reputation of your business and open up new commercial opportunities. Even when working from home one faces cyber security issues as staff use company laptops and phones or even use their own. In the case of the one-man-band the business owner’s use of systems, devices and data unfortunately opens doors to serious cyber threats if some rules and habits are not followed.
