It has become more apparent than ever this year that many organisations don’t have access to end to end professional privacy and security support.
This gap continues to be exploited relentlessly by cyber criminals and to great effect. Small and medium sized businesses do not have, nor can they afford, dedicated privacy, risk and security leaders with large teams to support their day to day operations and risks.
7th August this year the United Nations confirmed a 350% rise in discovered and reported phishing attempts on organisations. Those are just the ones organisations saw and went on to report. The true figure is likely to be much higher. Nearly 90% of malware attacks arrive through phishing emails, and this year we have seen devastating malware attacks affecting UK organisations ranging from business to academia. Along with phishing attacks, malware attacks are very much on the rise.

If the malware or hardware attack leads to a breach for enterprise level businesses the cost is nearly £4m from assessment through recovery. For smaller businesses the cost may be lower but no less devastating.
