British firms were each subjected to an average of almost 230,000 cyber attacks in 2016, according to recent analysis from business internet service provider Beaming. The average volume of attacks hitting individual company firewalls passed the 1,000 per day mark for the first time in November. Meanwhile, the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council has suggested that UK firms could face up to £122 billion in fines for cyber security breaches in 2018. Of that, £52 billion will be levied on small to medium size enterprises, it said. The frustrating thing is that it does not have to be like this because a few simple precautions can keep the hackers out. We can help protect your IT system from the latest cyber threats.
