Large corporate targets are getting harder to breach as they often have the resources to constantly upgrade and improve their security systems. But small businesses are a growing target, with 43% of cyber attacks targeted at them as they are seen as easier to breach.

  • Recognising the security risks faced online, and the accountant's role in protecting sensitive information
  • Exploring steps you can take to lower the risks of a breach
  • A 3-part plan you can implement right away
