Cyber Security for Startups

Cyber security for startups is a necessity. In fact, 43% of cyberattacks are aimed at startups and over half of all small businesses have been the victim of a cyberattack. This makes the need to protect your startup against cyber-attacks even more critical.


With the average cost of recovering from a cyber attack hitting £65000, can you afford to stay unprotected?

What does Cyber Security for Startups Entail?


Your startup’s needs and specific offerings will determine the cyber security requirements needed to ensure a safe digital work environment. Here at Defensity Cyber Security, we understand the uniqueness of every startup.

Therefore, we know that there is not a one-size-fits-all Cyber Security solution. Instead, our devoted team members will work with you to determine the exact cyber security your startup needs to succeed.


Cyber Security Challenges Facing Startups


Startups can gain notoriety quickly. It is common for startups to go from seed to established practically overnight. Usually, it is much easier for a startup to gain immediate attention than other businesses due to its nature.


Unfortunately, that also makes adequate cyber security for startups more difficult. After all, not all attention is good attention, and now, more than ever, startups need to rely on remote options to continue functioning. This reliance on remote, cyber transactions makes these common cyber security challenges facing startups an increased threat:




Data Leakage


Insider Sabotage



It seems that no matter what startups do to protect themselves, there is another cyber security threat on the horizon, but don’t worry! Instead, be proactive.
