We are committed to making the UK the safest place in the world to live and do business online. This includes ensuring all UK organisations - including small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) - are secure online and resilient to cyber threats.
The National Cyber Security Centre offers a range of guidance and support for SMEs. This includes the Cyber Security Small Business Guide launched in October 2017, which provides quick, easy and low-cost cyber security advice to small businesses; and Cyber Essentials, a certification scheme setting out the technical measures to protect against common cyber attacks.
In addition, the Cyber Aware campaign offers practical advice to micro-businesses, encouraging employees and customers to adopt simple, protective cyber security measures. Further detail is set out in the National Cyber Security Strategy, which is backed with £1.9 billion of investment to keep the UK safe online.
