In an increasingly digitalized world, it is no longer a matter of if but when a business will be attacked by cybercriminals. There is also no business too small to escape their attention. In fact, there has been a marked rise in the incidences of cyberattacks on SMEs in recent years. Digitalization is an enabler of business but it is also an enabler of cyber criminals especially when human error is combined with lax controls and processes.
