Cyber resilience is becoming more and more important both for individuals and for businesses.
In 2015, more than 60% of SMEs in Scotland experienced a security breach but 65% still think they are not a target. Nearly 40% spend nothing on security.
The average financial cost of a cyber attack for an SME in Scotland is £3,000. However this is just the tip of the iceberg for many with several businesses suffering a seriously damaged reputation, denied access to business critical services such as customer details or their website taken offline denying them access to their sales channels.
With this in mind Digital Scotland has put together both a Cyber Resilience Toolkit which will help you understand the challenges and where you can access help and a Cyber Resilience Voucher system which you may be able to apply for.
