The security of the global economic system is an important consideration for businesses of all sizes, large and small. Despite the fact that many business owners in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) believe that cybercrime is a phenomenon that only affects large businesses and has serious consequences for those businesses.
Statistics show that both small and large companies are at risk. As a result, hackers who are aware that small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) implement significantly fewer cyber security measures prefer to target them rather than large companies because they perceive these companies as being easier targets.
In addition to the other Continuity principles, Cyber Resilience content will shroud the demands of a Business Continuity professional in the areas of cyber risks and threats, as well as how their treatment ties into the organization’s overall Resilience framework and effort.
