Cyber Crime

Cyber Crime - the 21st Century crime 

Hacking, Phising, Spoofing, Malware, Ransomware, to name a few.  We’ve all heard of them although too many businesses either choose to ignore them or take inadequate protection against them.

Some industry experts believe that there are effectively two kinds of businesses; those that have been cyber attacked and those that are yet to be.

A recent study indicated that for small and medium sized businesses the average cost of the worst cyber security breaches was anywhere between £75000 and £300000.  Not a bad 'haul' when you consider that a large number of cyber crimes are perpetrated by someone miles away using a simple laptop, and with a limited chance of being brought to justice. 

The overall loss may not just be confined to the physical loss of funds. What about the cost of getting your systems back up and running following a ransomware attack or securing data and notifying affected clients and customers after a data theft?  The list goes on.

So how can we help?
