Evolving Security Threats
"According to data compiled by insurance company Zurich, 875,000 SMEs across the UK have been affected by a cyber-attack over the last 12 months, with firms in London worst affected.
Of the companies hit, just over a fifth reported that it cost them more than £10,000 and one in 10 said that it had cost them more than £50,000."¹
Cyber crime is increasing at a monumental rate. The risk associated can be extremely costly and in many cases, has forced SMEs to close business. Cyber crime is something that should not be overlooked. Ensure your network infrastructure is safe and protected to the best degree possible.
A common form of cyber crime is ransomware. Learn more about this specific cyber crime through our: 'Ransomware - It is not slowing down!' blog.
