Listen: businesses left open to attack from cyber criminals

Thousands of the UK’s smallest firms could be leaving themselves open to cyber-attack because they have little or no business-grade cyber security measures in place.

That’s according to new research from BT which has found that many thousands of businesses are still at risk from cyber criminals despite having security measures in place because they are relying on products which are not designed for business use.

It comes just a week after the government published their annual Cyber Security Breaches Survey which revealed that almost half (48%) of the UK’s small businesses reported cyber security breaches or attacks in the past year.

Aston spoke to Tristan Morgan, BT’s director of security advisory services.
