At CommSec, we understand the complexity, confusion and cost that the vast number of solutions for Cyber security can create for small and medium sized businesses. Having Anti-Virus in place is no longer sufficient in protecting your business from modern threats, but it can be quite difficult to know what additional protections to put in place.
Cyber-attacks on Irish businesses continue to increase, up 31% on 2020 and showing no sign of slowing down. A cyber-attack can be operationally and financially devastating for a business, but the risk of such an attack occurring can be hugely reduced by having good cyber hygiene in place.
The truth is, there are many ways an attacker can attempt to compromise your business such as:
- Phishing attacks (emails with suspicious links)
- Smishing (text messages with spurious links)
- Business Email Compromise (BEC) and account take-overs
- Man-in-the-middle attacks
- Invoice Redirection
- Exploiting vulnerable software
We wanted to simplify the process of implementing effective cyber security for SMB’s and to take the pain away in terms of keeping up to date with, and protected against, the latest threats.
Business secure plan is ideal for businesses:
- who hold sensitive data
- do not have a dedicated IT security resource
- are linked in the supply chain to larger organisations
- staff that may have BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) or remote workers
- worried about their ability to defend against a cyber attack
CommSec Business Secure was designed to assist small and medium sized business in both securing their operations against threats (such as fraud and ransomware) not covered by some Cyber Insurance policies, and satisfying conditions set down by insurance companies as a pre-requisite for obtaining Cyber Insurance quotations.
