Cyber security nightmares? You’re not alone

Are you a business owner who’s continually putting off addressing cyber security? You’re not alone.

Cyber attacks, data breaches, and stories of cyber criminals stealing from individuals and businesses are as common place as a bus replacement service on Sunday (if you don’t use the trains very often, I apologise for this analogy). These are real threats for all businesses; it’s not personal, it’s just the way of the modern world.

Our dependence upon the Internet and the data we send across it provide endless opportunities for cyber criminals. Additionally, automated hacking tools look for vulnerabilities in systems without caring who owns that system: it doesn’t matter if you’re a florist, a construction recruitment agency or you manufacture hinges, if you have an online presence you need to ensure you have adequate cyber defences.

I don’t have a massive budget for cyber defences, what should I do?

First of all, consider this:

Large organisations in the UK are paying between £600,000 and £1.15 million for their worst breaches, while even small organisations are being stung for between £65,000 and £115,000*. The effects of a successful cyber attack can be devastating. You must ensure that you protect your business, and understand how to respond to one. Ask yourself: can I afford to suffer an attack?

If you are completely new to cyber security then the UK Government’s Cyber Essentials scheme is the perfect place to start. It advocates implementing a set of five controls that can help organisations stop up to 80% of the most common cyber attacks.
