Small and medium-sized businesses in Hertfordshire are falling victim to cybercrime which is costing them millions of pounds every year. In 2017 Hertfordshire was one of the most targeted counties in the UK by cyber criminals with over £3 million being stolen, the single highest loss was for £1.3m.
Many SMEs feel that there is nothing they can do to protect themselves from cybercrime, that there is no point in reporting it, or even that it is ‘not a real crime’. Business owners frequently cite difficulty in implementing cyber security measures with many saying that they ‘don’t know where to start’ in order to deal with cyber issues.
Working with Hertfordshire County Council to raise awareness of the importance of cyber security amongst small business, Herts Police and Crime Commissioner David Lloyd has made funding available for 100 Herts micro businesses to receive a FREE Cyber Basics Review from an accredited Hertfordshire IT provider.
