Cyber Security Can Be More Affordable Than You Think

Published on 23/01/2018

At SES we understand that investing in Cyber Security can be incredibly costly and many smaller organisations simply cannot afford some of the higher end Cyber Security services.

With this in mind, SES have developed a range of cost effective Cyber Security services, all of which are designed to ensure that organisations of all sizes and with all budgets can get the protection they need to improve their Cyber Security posture and defend against cyber threats.

Cyber attacks are becoming more frequent. The UK Government’s Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2017 found that a whopping 46% of UK businesses discovered a cyber security breach in the last year, rising to two thirds - 66% in medium sized organisations (50 – 249 employees) and 68% - in large organisations (250+ employees). Despite this, a sizeable proportion of businesses do not have any formalised processes or basic protection in place to defend against Cyber Threats.

Key findings of the report included: 

Only 33% of businesses have a formal policy in place to cover cyber risks, with only 32% documenting these risks in business continuity plans, internal audits or risk registers. 

Just 29% have made specific board members responsible for Cyber Security. 

Only a fifth (20%) have had their staff attend any form of Cyber security training in the last 12 months, with non specialist staff particularly unlikely to attend training. 

Cyber Security is a rising issue for organisations across the globe. With high profile Cyber attacks happening on a frequent basis, it is essential for firms of all sizes to identify and remediate any weaknesses in their cyber security, minimising attack surfaces and therefore reducing any impact to their businesses in the event of an attack.
