With much of the focus recently on Cyber Security for large Enterprises, we wanted to highlight the importance of Cyber Security for SME organisations. Most large organisations now have their own dedicated cyber security teams and therefore those looking to gain financial advantage or to cause damage to these companies tend to look for the weakest link which can be the SME that didn’t believe they had any information of worth.
A breach for an SME can be far more devastating than for a large enterprise as the fines and reputational damage could mean the business does not recover. SME’s should now be looking at the benefits that cyber security can bring to their business. Many contracts now stipulate that companies should be cyber essentials or ISO27001 certified, having these certifications in place can open further revenue streams and provide good governance to help protect a growing business.
