How well is your business protected against cybercrime?

Many small business owners pay little attention to their IT security, thinking breaches are unlikely to happen to them, but the threat from cybercrime is growing and it is small businesses that are being targeted. Two-thirds of SME’s do not believe they are vulnerable to cyberattack according to 2015 research from the Government’s Cyber Essentials programme. In fact, every business that uses digital communication is at risk.

The Cyber Essentials scheme has been developed by Government and industry to fulfil two functions. It provides a clear statement of the basic controls all organisations should implement to mitigate the risk from common internet based threats, within the context of the Government’s  ‘10 Steps to Cyber Security’. And through the Assurance Framework it offers a mechanism for organisations to demonstrate to customers, investors, insurers and others that they have taken these essential precautions.

The Assurance Framework, leading to the awarding of Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus certificates for organisations, has been designed in consultation with SMEs to be light-touch and achievable at low cost.

HDUK has itself recently been accredited under the scheme and, provided you can demonstrate that your company meets the requirements of the scheme for basic technical protection from cyberattacks, the actual process is quite straightforward. Achieving accreditation permits your company to display the scheme logo on your website, on marketing materials, and in all electronic or hard copy communications, giving those that deal with you confidence that you take cyber security seriously.
