Technology has revolutionised the business world, from the way an organisation interacts with customers or clients to the way they store and read data.

But cyber crime doesn’t discriminate depending on the size of the company. The Federation of Small Businesses discovered that two thirds of their members have been a victim of cyber crime in the last two years.
