New Book helps SMEs to Combat Cyber Attacks

This new book (The Little Book of Cyber Scams) has been designed to assist you in taking the necessary steps to protect your small business and customers against cyber criminals.


The global pandemic resulted in a seismic shift towards remote working, creating millions of home offices across the UK where hours are spent communicating via online platforms like Zoom or Teams.


According to IBM Security's 'Cost of a Data Breach Report 2021', the average cost of a data breach for businesses with 81% (or more) of their workforce working remotely was $5.54m. With a recent rise in device and cloud service usage to perform work-related tasks, cybercriminals have capitalised on this increase, leaving more and more people victims of cybercrime.


During the last few years, cybercriminals have continued to strike as there is more chance a successful attack will go unnoticed for a longer period of time.

The Little Book of Scams will help you:

  • Spot the early signs of an active attack

  • Keep your staff up to date with the latest scams

  • Check your business email addresses to see if they have been compromised

  • Check the sender's email address on an email without clicking on any links

  • Make your staff aware of CEO fraud which could cost you large sums of money

  • Understand what personal information about you is available online and how it could be used by a cybercriminal

  • Avoid you and your staff getting caught out using public Wi-Fi

  • Report cybercrime the right way

It is full of invaluable tools and tips to help you make your business more cyber resilient and in doing so protect your customer's valuable data.
