Small Firms Told To Be ‘Cyber Streetwise’ to Avoid Online Attack

Small businesses have been urged to become “cyber streetwise,” in order to avoid the risk of internet attack.

An estimated 11 million internet-enabled devices were received as gifts throughout the UK over Christmas.

Business security experts said this could put firms at risk if employees failed to take precautions.

The UK government has launched a campaign called “Cyber Streetwise” to change the way people view online safety.

It aims to provide the public and businesses with the skills and knowledge they need to take control of their cyber security.

It comes at a time when an increasing number of people use the web on laptops, tablets and smartphones.

Impact

Findings from the government’s most recent National Cyber Security Consumer Tracker suggested many people did not take simple actions to protect themselves online.
