Cyber Security for Business Users

In today’s interconnected world, cyber-attacks are a threat to all businesses and anyone holding personal or sensitive information such as customer data is a particularly attractive source of information for criminals. Commercial data, financial information and sensitive client data may all be targeted.


The Information Security Breaches Survey 2014, commissioned by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and carried out by PwC, found that 81% of large organisations and 60% of small businesses had suffered a security breach during the previous year. The average cost of an organisations’ worst breach was between £65,000 and £115,000 for small businesses and between £600,000 and £1.15 million for large organisations.
