Given the global disruption caused to businesses by the WannaCry attack, many companies are looking at what they need to do to reduce their vulnerability levels.
The fact is that whilst tech solutions are important the biggest area to focus on is the human element.
Human error is the main cause of data breaches, figures obtained by Egress Software Technologies via a Freedom of Information (FOI) request found that human error accounted for almost two-thirds (62%) of the incidents reported to the ICO – far outstripping other causes, such as insecure webpages and hacking, standing at 9% combined.
Last year 75.6% of small businesses experienced a cyber breach. (Source: Blue Coat). The average cost of a breach for small businesses can be anything from £75,000, to a staggering £311,000. (Source: PwC).
Most organisations have done some of the basics, like update firewalls, obtain cyber essentials etc. However, our goal is to help businesses reduce the risk of a cyber-attack by making all their employees more aware of the threats; we like to call it ‘Switching on your Human Firewall.’
At Layer 8 we have a commitment to supporting local businesses so, to help keep the members of the Bedfordshire Chamber of Commerce more secure, we are offering a whopping 33% off all our toolkit subscriptions, throughout the month of June.
We are also planning a Q&A webinar with two of our directors to enable you to get some free advice on how to keep your businesses safe.
