Half of SMEs have no breach prevention or recovery plan

From SC Magazine

"Half of small businesses in the UK (52%) are not taking any preventative measures to protect themselves against cyber crime despite increased awareness of data breaches – and 68% have no disaster recovery or business continuity plan in place.

They don't understand that they are as much at risk of cyber attacks as large enterprises, says the new research by CSID, which is based on a survey of 102 small UK businesses.

Most respondents (85%) also have no plans to increase their budgets for security implementation and fewer than 13% are working with a third-party vendor to protect themselves.

In the event of a breach, 63% of small businesses said they would most likely turn to their insurer, bank, lawyer or IT supplier for assistance; the police being the least likely first point of call.

Half of respondents' (53%) main concern in the event of a data breach was reputational damage, but only 47% of respondents monitor their brands online and fewer than 15% have a social media policy. Just 9% were worried about the negative impact on employees.”
