Cyber Security for Micro Businesses

Cybercriminals do not discriminate against any business. Cyber security for micro businesses is just as important as it is for enterprise level businesses – with 60% of micro businesses going out of business 6 months after a cyber-attack, the time to act is now.


Let the experts at Defensity help you understand how to defend your business against cyber security threats. 

What does Cyber Security for Micro Businesses Entail?


Cyber security has become a crucial aspect of every business. Cybercriminals have advanced their techniques, making it difficult for normal security structures to detect these attacks. In the UK, 20% of micro-businesses experience attempted attacks every year. Out of these attacks, businesses incur an average of £1300 to repair damaged infrastructure like servers.


As a micro-business, your cybersecurity strategy should focus on the following areas:


What are the Challenges around Cyber Security for Micro Sized Businesses?

Insufficient resources

Complete cyber security requires resources in terms of expertise, infrastructure, and money which many micro-businesses cannot afford.

Lack of awareness

Many micro-businesses associate cyber-attacks with big enterprises. This fallacy has led to micro-businesses taking cybersecurity as an afterthought.

Lack of sufficient staff training

Staff, is the first line of defence when it comes to cybersecurity. Therefore, a well-trained staff is an asset in securing organisational resources—however, only 34% of micro-businesses train their employees. At Defensity, we have a suitable awareness training program that will equip your employees with necessary skills and knowledge to counter cyber threats.

Valuable Tips on Cybersecurity


Cybersecurity cannot be traded with anything else. As the saying goes: “prepare for the worst, but hope for the best”, you should treat cyber-attacks as inevitable, and be ready for them. As a micro business, you do not have to implement the most expensive or comprehensive cybersecurity policy, the likes of which big corporations deploy; all you need is a targeted policy that serves you right.
