It has been announced that organisations will receive a fine for not having Cyber Security measures in place to prevent hackers and cyber criminals from stealing their data. Today’s blog will give you all the details about what consequences your organisation can face and also what we can do to help you protect your business against cyber criminals.
Why has this been discussed?
Since the WannaCry virus caused so much chaos across the NHS, the government have decided that it must be compulsory for organisations to have cyber security measures in place so that a major issue like this doesn’t happen again.
The government feel as though it would be too much of a risk to let organisations go about their business without the relevant protection schemes in place. Some organisations are completely unaware of how important it is to have backups and cyber security in place because they simply do not think they’re a target. Like everyone’s parents said ‘it’s better to be safe than sorry’.
What measures need to be in place
There are several measures that you need to have in place for your business including:
- Monitoring threats and detecting attacks
- Good staff training
- Having quick recovery systems in place

You may think any anti-virus will do, but in fact it won’t do the trick. Anti-virus is aimed to specifically protect against viruses and not ransomware and malware which is a common mistake people make. If you have a cyber security system and an anti virus system in place, the two will enhance your PC protection and reduce your risk of being a target.
