The German Federal Office of Civil Protection (BBK) has warned that hackers could turn their attention to more ‘softer’ targets in future.
Christopher Unger, president of BBK warns that smaller targets could be the next victims of cyberattacks. We have already seen the hits of Sony and Facebook, and just last month German police databases were infiltrated. Now there is a new fear that smaller organisations, seen as ‘softer’ targets, could be next on hackers list.
The ‘softer’ targets that Unger refers to are civilian targets, which could mean home users, the public and private sector, and small to medium businesses could be affected next.
But if you are a small business, how can you afford to put significant plans in place to reduce the risk of suffering a cyber attack or a data breach? Well, there are actually many cost-effective solutions out there, specifically designed for small businesses that don’t have a large budget.
There is no need to spend thousands of Euros on consultancy fees, or spend months putting all the documentation together to make sure you are compliant.
