Dear Members and Friends

Not so long ago, many SMEs believed managing cyber risks was something strictly for banks and other big companies. Everybody now knows that every business, whatever its size and sector, has to manage cyber risks to protect itself, its data and its customers’ data. Here’s an article from your fellow SICC Member and Chamber service provider Network Box which has recently been pre-approved by IMDA as a Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP). Many congratulations to all the talented team at Network Box!

Have a great week ahead.

Yours faithfully
Victor Mills
Chief Executive

With a grant of up to 70% available to help SMEs invest in cyber security, companies are increasingly looking to employ Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) which monitor their cyber defence systems around the clock. This is a much more effective way to help prevent ransomware and other cyber intrusions. Traditional cyber protection has proved insufficient in protecting companies’ IT networks, as companies both large and small continue to fall prey to cyber villains.
