Free Workshop opportunity for The Members of The Business Network Chester Networking Group
A recent government survey estimated that the average cost of a small business’s worst cyber attack is between £65,000 and £115,000. However, according to specialist business insurance broker PolicyBee, 74 per cent of small businesses haven’t put any money aside to deal with an attack.
Cyber security needn’t be a daunting challenge for small business owners. One resource available is from the National Cyber Security Centre – which has quick and easy steps outlined in the guide that could save time, money and even your business’ reputation. There guide can’t guarantee protection from all types of cyber attack, but the steps outlined can significantly reduce the chances of your business becoming a victim of cyber crime.
If you want to improve your cyber security further, then you can also seek certification under the Cyber Essentials scheme, which has the benefit of demonstrating to your clients (or prospective clients) that you take the protection of their data seriously. And if you’re a larger business, or face a greater risk from cyber crime, then the 10 Steps to Cyber Security can further help your approach to cyber security.
