The harsh reality is that if you work online, you’re at risk of being attacked by a cyber criminal. It’s reported that less than half of small to medium sized businesses in the UK have a Cybersafe management plan in place, making them an easy target for hackers who want access to sensitive information.

These days, getting the right IT framework in place to protect your business is just as important as recruiting the right team members. Without it, your confidential data and reputation are in a much more vulnerable position. Here we take a closer look at the importance of becoming a Cybersafe business and putting the right security measures in place.

Why is becoming Cybersafe so important?

You wouldn’t store confidential passwords on your desk. Not only would they be easy for the wrong people to see, but you’d also be giving them a free pass to get their hands on valuable assets and financial information. The same theory applies to your online activity. Any confidential data belonging to your business and your clients will only be secure if it’s well protected, which is why becoming Cybersafe is so important.

By adopting the right protocols, your business will be safeguarded against financial loss and a damaged reputation, both of which can be difficult to recover from. No one wants to be accused of negligence when it comes to GDPR regulations, so prioritising cyber safety can help to maintain client trust and avoid serious data breaches.

How do I know whether my business is Cybersafe?

Unfortunately, becoming Cybersafe isn’t as simple as just choosing one particular tool to keep your hardware and software safe. Hackers and opportunists are using increasingly sophisticated techniques to access sensitive information, so it’s best to opt for more than one defence technique to defer them. This typically means using chosen methods to monitor incoming traffic, then protecting your data internally.

Access control, network security and data backup are all effective practices to achieve cyber security, as is training your team members to minimise human error. The UK is still the biggest target for phishing attacks (fraudulent emails) in Europe, so helping your colleagues and team members identify malicious links could safeguard the future of your business.
