Cyber-Crime: Protect Your Business

Cyber-crime is now rife. It cost the UK economy £10 billion last year.  Are you doing everything you can to protect your business from the risks?

Check out these (external) survey figures:

  • 25% of the public feel they have a only limited understanding of online risks
  • 68% of the public have been targeted in some way
    • 53% received fraudulent emails or messages directing them to websites where key information could be stolen
    • More than one-third (38%) said the matter was too trivial to report and that nothing could be done anyway
  • Nearly half use the same password for multiple accounts, with many failing to heed advice on this when prompted.
  • People use an average nine passwords across devices and accounts
  • People update security software every 8½ months but 20% don’t do this at all
  • A quarter never update social media privacy settings; half don’t know how to
  • A third don’t back up documents and photographs.
