BIS has published a short guide called Small businesses: What you need to know about cyber security.
The guide provides a starting point to help establish a protection plan by highlighting a number of key questions that the business should ask.
There is also an ‘innovation voucher’ available from the Technology Strategy Board. Applications can be made from now until 17 August. The website states that ‘innovation vouchers for cyber security can be used to secure specialist consulting and services to help businesses looking to:
- protect new inventions and business processes
- ‘cyber audit’ their existing processes
- move online and develop a technology strategy
- develop an idea into a working prototype and needing to build cyber security into the business from the very beginning.’
