The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) is encouraging businesses to bolster their cyber security in light of the continued events in Ukraine and the increased threat of cyber-attacks.

For small and medium business owners, the continued conflict might seem far-removed from the day to day running of your business. You may find yourself believing you’re not at risk or that cyber attacks only happen to large corporate organisations.

We know that this isn’t the case – hackers don’t discriminate and most businesses, regardless of size or sector, are at risk. It’s important that commercial clients understand this. The threat is real and falling victim to a cyber attack or data breach can have a huge effect on your business.

When it comes to good cyber hygiene, it’s about getting the basics right. Putting simple measures in place, for example ensuring software is up to date and that your staff are trained to spot the signs of a potential attack, can make a big difference when it comes to bolstering cyber defences.

We’ve developed a quick guide to help businesses manage their cyber threat, providing you with some practical guidance on reviewing your IT tools and processes as well as how to spot a malicious email.
