Cyber resilience toolkit

Support provided by Business Gateway

What does this involve?

Preventing cyberattacks is vastly preferable to trying to resolve a security incident. SMEs are more likely than larger businesses to be randomly targeted, and a security breach could affect your revenue and reputation. A loss of personal data may also incur fines. 
 
Getting the basics of cyber resilience right often doesn’t incur any costs. And it’s just as important to implement behaviour change and more secure processes as it is to put in place technological solutions. The more layers of defence, the greater your cyber resilience. 
 
Use the DigitalBoost cyber resilience toolkit to follow the cyber resilience journey, discover 5 cyber essentials, learn about your first and last line of defence, and much more besides.
