If you’re not sure where to start with cybersecurity, don’t worry. You’re not the only one. Everybody knows that cybersecurity is non-negotiable in today’s world of digital trading, electronic data and transformative technologies.

But, with so many software, package and provider options it can be really overwhelming knowing where to start. Or, perhaps you’ve neglected your cybersecurity (which the vast majority of businesses have been guilty of at some point) simply because you’ve so far avoided a significant cyberattack or data breach.

Turning around your cybersecurity woes

However, being overwhelmed, uncertain or distanced can’t be reasons to rest on our laurels. Especially when cybercrime costs UK business a staggering £11bn per year, and a British company experiences every 50 seconds – yes, we did mean to write seconds!

If you fall into either of these camps (or, from our industry experience, anywhere in between) we recommend getting a Cybersecurity Audit before thinking about anything else. This essential first step will tell you exactly where your problems are and how to fix them, becoming the blueprint for cybersecurity investments.
