Small companies more worried about cyber-crime than Brexit
A survey of 500 SMEs, conducted by Barclaycard, has found that small firms are more concerned by the threat posed by cyber-crime than they are about Brexit. Some 44% of SMEs are worried about being hit by cybercrime or a data breach, by comparison just 34% cited Brexit as a major concern. In response to cybersecurity fears, SMEs are planning to increase their spend on firewalls, security software and other defences to more than £3.8bn over the next 12 months.
