Talk to the majority of people about hacking and they will think of Hollywood movie plots or things that happen to large International Corporations – not me, not my business surely!

Business owners assume hackers would need to pick their business out of 27 million others but this really isn’t the case. Hacks are automated and focused on discovering vulnerabilities, there isn’t someone at a computer choosing a business to target.

44% of Small Businesses have been victims of Cyber attacks

60% of Businesses hit by a Cyber attack go out of business within 6 months of the attack

Average cost is over £8,000 per attack

So what can you do to make sure you do not end up as ‘just another statistic’ of Cybercrime

I would suggest getting your Business hacked – “ethically”

The purpose of ethical hacking is to evaluate the security of and identify vulnerabilities in systems, networks or system infrastructure. Basically to see things from a rogue hackers (black hat) point of view – finding and attempting to exploit any vulnerabilities and determine whether any unauthorised access or other malicious activities are possible.

Hiring an ethical hacker (White Hat) doesn’t mean stalking the dark web and bartering with bitcoins. There’s now a wide array of qualified security professionals to choose from, complete with formal ethical hacking qualifications.

Improving your cyber security means learning how to think like a hacker.

….Can you afford not to?
