Cyber Crime

Research carried out by the UK government’s ‘Cyber Streetwise’ campaign indicates that 66% of small & medium enterprises (SMEs) don’t consider their business to be vulnerable to cyber crime.

Research carried out by the UK government’s ‘Cyber Streetwise’ campaign indicates that 66% of small & medium enterprises (SMEs) don’t consider their business to be vulnerable to cyber crime.

26% believe that only companies taking payments online are at risk of cyber crime and 22% feel it is just a ‘big business’ issue. In reality, most small businesses hold more data than they think and often without any additional preventative measures in place to protect themselves. In 2014, 33% of small businesses suffered a cyber attack from someone outside their business.

“Every business is at risk - hacking payment processing software is an obvious route for cyber criminals, but a far wider range of companies - and their data - is at risk.”

The government’s Information Security Breaches Survey found that the average cost of the worst security breach is between £65k and £115k and can result in a business being out of action for up to ten days (not to mention the reputational damage and loss of customers).
