Assessing Your Business’s Cyber Risk

2nd July 2019 5 min read

The Government's Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2019 states that around a third (32%) of businesses report suffering a cyber security breach or attack in the last 12 months.

It is vital that you assess your business’s risk of a cyber-attack; we have put together the below tips to help you:

  • Be aware of the risk profile of your business by completing our cyber risk assessment quiz

  • Protect your business’s vulnerabilities. These could include holding significant amounts of customer and/or sensitive data so you need to ensure you are GDPR compliant

  • Confirm your IT team are carrying out regular security updates and security patches

  • Install anti-virus, anti-spam and firewall systems

  • Consider how your business would be impacted by a cyber breach, such as interruption to key systems, loss of data, or a PR issue where you receive negative press

  • Ensure your business has a cyber incident response in place, comprehensive security practices and well-trained staff

  • Protect your business from a significant loss by purchasing comprehensive insurance
