Protect your business against the fastest growing crime in the UK with cyber insurance

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News

Cyber attacks can occur at any point in time, businesses fend off all types of cyber attacks around the clock, 24/7 365.

From insider threats, through social engineering, to phishing, malware cross site scripting cyber attacks can start anywhere at any time.
For the majority of businesses their normal working environment transformed overnight, with COVID-19 restrictions significantly increasing remote working and resulting in greater opportunities for cyber crime. No longer does a company have to just protect its business locations, there are now hundreds, even thousands of locations to protect. Even businesses created to support remote and flexible working struggled to manage the risk and exposure on such a large basis.

The majority of victims of cyber crime are Small to Medium Enterprises. Ransomware attacks, fund transfer fraud, phishing, vishing and social engineering are all made far easier with employees working remotely, combined with insecure home Wi-Fi.

The media always report the big security breaches at major well-known companies, however, SME’s are the more common victims of cyber crime and attacks.

The Federation of Small Businesses estimates that SME’s are facing up to 10,000 attacks daily. Cyber criminals see SME’s as easy targets, even though the proceeds are less. A lot of SME’s lack awareness and resources, investment in IT security and staff training on cyber security risks.
