Cyber Security – Small Business Guide

Cyber security needn't be a daunting challenge for small business owners.

Following the five quick and easy steps below could save time, money, your business’ reputation and can significantly reduce the chances of your business becoming a victim of cyber crime:

  • always back up your data
  • protect your organisation from malware
  • keep your smartphones and tablets safe
  • use passwords to protect your data
  • how to avoid phishing attacks

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has lots of information and guides on how to improve cyber security for your business.

If you want to improve your cyber security further, then you can also seek certification under the Cyber Essentials scheme, which has the benefit of demonstrating to your clients (or prospective clients) that you take the protection of their data seriously.

And if you're a larger business, or face a greater risk from cyber crime, then the 10 Steps to Cyber Security can further help your approach to cyber security.

For further information please visit the NCSC website.

Why not visit the Business Crime Wales website for information on how to protect your business against all types of crime.
