How to minimise the impact of a cyber attack
Cyber-attacks are increasingly common, but many businesses are still in denial about the threat of being hit
Small businesses are particularly vulnerable, as they are often considered a soft target, without the funds, time or knowledge to defend themselves. Plus, with so many other things on their plate, it’s hard for small businesses to find time to think about cyber security, or plan for the aftermath of an attack.
Even with the best technology and security measures in place, sometimes you’re powerless to stop a breach. That’s why an effective response plan is essential, enabling you to control the situation as quickly as possible, with minimum impact to you and your customers. Yet, despite its importance, few small businesses have a contingency plan in place, putting them at risk of greater damage, higher costs and a bigger dent on your reputation.
From securing your systems to informing affected customers and carrying out a full investigation, click here to read about the key steps you should take to minimise the damage if your business is hit by a cyber-attack.
