Britain is in the midst of a vicious circle as a lack of cyber-security skills makes it both vulnerable to attacks and appealing to attackers.
A study has found that UK SMEs were attacked on average 230,000 times each in 2016. Individual businesses were targeted up to 1,000 times per day, on average, in November and December.
For SME owners, it can be hard to keep track of the latest tech trends while running a business. Small Business Trends recently complied a list of essential technology and strategies to help make 2017 the best year yet for smaller enterprises.
UK schools have become the latest target of a wave of ransomware attacks, Action Fraud has warned. According to the police: "fraudsters are posing [as] government officials in order to trick people into installing ransomware which encrypts files on victims' computers".
