We all hold a place here, you are reading this article via the internet right now, and we all acknowledge how wonderful the web is. However, do you really know the ins and outs of the internet? And are you and your business safe?
Since the COVID pandemic hit in 2020, all types of businesses were affected. From huge global names to small scale businesses, the pandemic resulted in a 600% rise of Cybercrimes. This is due to the uncertainty around remote working and how to protect your personal and business accounts.

According to Cybint, a whopping 95% of cyber security breaches are due to human error, staff not being properly trained to deal with these incidents. If these mistakes are made then a cyber breach is inevitable, which not only leads to lost trust but a large fine. In fact, the maximum fine for a cyber breach is £17.5 million or 4% of the annual global turnover.
