Don’t Skip Out On Cybersecurity

As a business, you will most likely gather a great deal of sensitive data, such as financial records or customer information. With cybercrime steadily on-the-rise, IT security should be a staple in any business infrastructure.

According to Comparitech, “More than 80% of UK organizations experienced a successful attack in 2021/2022…” making it extremely important for you to stay one step ahead of cybercriminals with efficient cyber security in place.

“It is not a question of ‘if’ but more of a question of ‘when’ your company be subjected to a cyber-attack. A data breach is more likely to come from human negligence rather than a criminal hack. When you strive to create a risk-aware culture within the workplace, you’re preventing your employees from becoming unknowingly complicit in the cyber-crime activity.” – Ben Whitehead, IT Director Citytalk Group
