New Start-Up Businesses and Small Businesses are the backbone of the world. You innovate, invent and bring joy worldwide. However, getting up, running and surviving the first couple of years is hard.
Did you know that 60% of small businesses that get hacked, end up closing within 12 months?
We know because we did it... twice! This is the reason we are running the campaign Summer of Essentials. Our Summer of Essentials is here to help Start-Up Companies and other Small Businesses get their Cyber Security right.
While your IT Provider might "do" security, they are primarily an IT provider and far from Cyber Security specialists. The number of times we have assisted small businesses who genuinely believed that they were secure because their IT provider told them they were is astounding (and scary!). On average, we are able to gain access to a small business's systems in under an hour, often more like 10 minutes. It is a genuine worry because we see the same mistakes being made over and over again.
Cyber Security is a tough challenge but we are going to give you the tools and knowledge to help you survive in this highly connected world, instead of magic fixes. Which brings us onto the kit!
Our Summer Essentials kit contains everything you need to get secure and stay secured. Useful templates, housekeeping checks, top tips and resources for finding professional support.
