Are you ready to protect your business for less than a fiver per day?

Updated: Mar 2

We’re here to help you make thousands of pounds of potential savings from cyber crime losses

  • 21 billion pounds: the estimated cost of cyber crime to UK businesses per year*

  • 1.8 billion pounds: the estimated cost of IP theft to the UK healthcare, pharmaceutical and bio- technology industry*

  • 4.3 million pounds: the worst case estimate of the cost of customer data loss to small UK businesses per year*

  • 46%: the percentage of businesses that have reported a cyber breach or attack in the last 12 months*

  • 65,000: the average number of attacks on businesses per day during the pandemic**

  • £3,230: the average cost to businesses because of cyber security breaches*

The potential cost of an online criminal attack on your business could run to tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of pounds, and the reality is, the likelihood of it happening is growing in line with cyber criminal activity.

As well as the financial losses, online criminal attacks can significantly damage a company’s reputation and have a knock-on effect in deterring investors, customers and partners.

But how much does it cost to protect your business from financial and reputational damage? You might be surprised at the answer…
