23 Jul SMEs Bearing The Brunt Of Cyber Crime
Small businesses in the UK suffered the most from the £15billion price of cyber attacks in 2018. According to the research carried-out by Beaming, most were organisations employing no more than 50 staff with an average cost to each of £65k with an estimated total cost to small businesses in the year estimated at £13.5billion!
Whilst Britain seems to be faring better than most EU countries, small British firms still seem to think they are not big enough to be of interest to the cyber criminals. Those small firms who were attacked last year will now know better and those who have yet to be, take note.
Every organisation large and small is being tested by phishing scams. Preparing your firm for a cyber attack is the best way to prevent it from happening.
Successful cyber attacks are never because of something that could not be prevented.
