Common misconceptions around cyber protection

cyber protection

  1. My company is not exposed to cyberattacks.

  2. Our IT department has cyber risks under control.

  3. We outsource.

  4. I don’t have the budget - cyber insurance is very expensive.

  5. This is a problem of large companies.

  1. Unless you don’t use any computers, mobile devices... etc.

  2. Hackers are now releasing over 100,000 new ransomware everyday. No security software vendor can keep up easily.

  3. Liability can’t be outsourced!

  4. Not really!

  5. Did you know that cyber-attacks on smaller organisations have increased from 18% in 2011 to 43% in 2016*? Large businesses and SMEs face most of the same threats. However, large businesses spend enormous sums on corporate cyber security, while SMEs don’t have the means to implement comprehensive protection, leaving significant risks uncovered.
