Cyber Attacks – Raise Your Awareness

In the wake of world events we feel that all businesses should be focussing keenly on the security of their systems.
The best defence by far, is employee awareness of malware in emails.
It is possible to run awareness testing of your staff by conducting email campaigns to safely test their susceptibility to scams and malicious emails.

We believe the threat within the SME business community will only increase in the coming months and you should be aware and prepared the best you can.
Disruption of business at this time can be critical to any firm.
There are multiple attacks everyday on large, medium and small businesses. SME’s are keenly targeted by hackers.

See this link for some of the attacks that have occurred in 2022 already.
