This month we’re shining the spotlight on our cyber security partner CyberSmart who offer a simple journey to improving cybersecurity, specifically for SMEs. We asked Jamie Akhtar, CEO, to share some insights into how they can help combat cyber risks.
“Cyber-attacks are on the rise across society but smaller businesses often get left behind when it comes to cyber security. Though no less vulnerable than a big corporate, they often lack the knowledge, resources, time and expertise to worry about the growing threats of cyber crime. But, with CyberSmart, no cyber expertise is required.
Combining people, processes, and technology our tool ensures any employee, contractor or affiliate accessing a business’s data and systems is safe – even if they’re using their own device.
