A staggering 68% of large organisations fell victim to a cyber breach in 2017. 66% of medium businesses experienced an attack, 52% of small businesses and 38% of micro firms*.
It’s estimated that 4 billion people will be online by 2020*. With it will come even more opportunity for cyber criminals to strike, including (but definitely not limited to) fraudulent emails and websites, hacking of online bank accounts, viruses, spyware, malware and ransomware. It’s now more important than ever that employers protect their businesses.
