With major companies such as Apple and HSBC showing they are not immune to cyber hacking, SMEs are justifiably worried about the cost of data leaks.

But are they effectively mitigating the associated risks?
SME customers should take appropriate steps to protect the data they hold and process. The ramifications of not doing so can be severe – legally, financially and reputationally.
We’ve been working with the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management, to create a practical guide to data and cyber security that’s a must-read for small businesses.
