Almost half of UK businesses experienced a cybersecurity breach or attack in the past 12 months, rising to 68% of medium-sized firms. This figure has increased since the start of the coronavirus pandemic and indications are this trend will continue.

By adopting Cyber Essentials, you can reduce the threat of attack by up to 80%.
