SMBs spending a day each week dealing with cybersecurity issues
Almost half of UK small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) believe a cyberattack would put their business at risk of closure, and 48 per cent of businesses report they have had to deprioritise activities that would help grow their business to address cybersecurity, a new research from Webroot reveals. The report, titled “Size Does Matter,” details the challenging climate for UK SMBs in a time of rapid political, economic and social change. Second only to Brexit, cybersecurity threats are the biggest source of uncertainty. As a result, SMBs are spending almost an entire working day (18% of their time) a week on cybersecurity related tasks.
