SME Cyber Security 27th February
The Business Show 2018
Following Barclays’ removal of its Kaepersky anti-virus service, British firms are engaging in a number of internal checks to ensure that their own customers are not at risk. Cyber-security has become one of the most serious challenges facing companies around the world, and as such, Westminster Business Council and the London Digital Security Centre will be discussing ways SME businesses can grow and innovate through operating in a secure digital environment.
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 those affected over a fifth of SMEs hit by a cyber attack said that the breach had cost them more than £10,000 and one in 10 said that it had cost them more than £50,000.
But despite those potential losses, a survey of over 1,000 UK SMEs also showed almost half – or 49 percent – admitted that they plan to spend £1,000 or less on their cyber defences in the next 12 months, while 22 percent said that they don’t know how much they will spend.
