Helping businesses manage their cyber risk


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

For small and medium business owners, the current conflict might seem far-removed from the day to day running of their business. They may find themselves believing they’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.

Your Insurance broker can play a key part in ensuring business owners understand that the threat is real and that falling victim to a cyber attack or data breach can have a huge effect on the 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 staff are trained to spot the signs of a potential attack, can make a big difference when it comes to bolstering cyber defences.
