Cyber skills the issue for SMBs

New cybersecurity surveys continue to point at the two main challenges faced by most smaller businesses in terms of defending against cyber attack:

  1. They don’t know where they are vulnerable; and
  2. They don’t have the skills to close down the vulnerabilities anyway.

Two things to do: get an outside expert to come and do a cyber security risk assessment, and either engage them to help close down the identified vulnerabilities or get your own staff trained up. A CISSP should now be a basic qualification for anyone dealing with cyber security in a business of any size.
