IT Pro 20/20: The weak link in cyber security

Issue 19 of IT Pro 20/20 looks at the cyber security problem facing small businesses and what this could mean for wider industries

IT Pro 20/20: The weak link in cyber security

Welcome to issue 19 of IT Pro 20/20, distilling the most important themes of the previous month into an easy-to-read package.

Maintaining robust cyber security is a difficult task for anyone, but smaller companies are increasingly finding themselves on the front line. At a time when almost a third of cyber attacks now involve a small business, we consider the dangers that this weak link could pose to the wider technology industry, and what steps SMBs and startups need to take to plug the gap.

Keeping with the theme of SMBs and startups, we also look at the tech startups that have thrived during lockdown, using their agility and flexibility to reshape business models and exploit unprecedented demand for services - something that every business can learn from.
