Cyber Security Guide

For Small Businesses

In our personal and working lives, we work with digital devices every day. They allow us to work and socialise at the tap of a screen. Having the world at our fingertips has transformed not only the way we organise our social calendar, order food and speak to the doctor but also the way we do business. This connectivity has brought us closer together, but it's not without risk and we all need to take steps to reduce this risk.

When running a small business you need to understand and prioritise where you can protect your organisation —is it your identity, your privacy, your systems, your data, or is it all of these things?

When you know what you want to protect, you need to understand how it might be at risk.
