We believe the major issue SMEs face with cyber security is simply having access to expertise. Often, small businesses don’t have regular access to IT or technical experts. Without appropriate support, they are left to sort it out themselves as best they can with some Google research. 

As we’ve discussed before, the truth is many SMEs don’t really believe they will be targeted by cyber criminals. If they do recognise the risk, they often don’t know what to do about it. The plethora of solutions available muddies the water for clear, ROI-based decision making.  

What they possibly don’t understand is that cyber criminals rarely craft specific attacks against specific organisations. Return on investment is as important to them as it is to any business. “Spray and pray” attacks (aka opportunistic attacks) such as phishing emails are much, much more common, and profitable for the criminals.  

Therefore, SMEs do need to act to ensure they are not the lowest hanging fruit. The solution often isn’t technical. Which is why we put together package-based services to look at and manage an SME’s holistic cyber risk. We use security experts because we believe that is what SMEs need. Your business needs someone who understands it, along with your people, your goals, your culture, and your existing technology. Once we have this context, we can help you identify and address the security risks in your business.

In a recent development, technology giant Microsoft have offered their own security expert services, recognising the clear gap in the market for this type of support.  Whilst Microsoft is going after the large enterprises, where can smaller businesses find this type of support? SMEs simply can’t afford not to act when it comes to cyber security. Breaches happen every day and the costs can be significant, especially when it comes to ransomware attacks.  

If your organisation is not clear on the cyber risks, or the solutions, Kloudwerk are here to help you. We fill your security gap by utillising seasoned security professionals in our affordable consulting packages.
