In recent weeks we have witnessed a number of significant disruption events affecting high profile organisations across the globe. From the WannaCry ransomware attack affecting the NHS in the UK, Renault in France and FedEx in the United States, to the British Airways breakdown resulting from a catastrophic IT failure.
On Friday 12th May 2017 the NHS reported a large scale Cyber security attack, affecting 47 NHS trusts across England and 13 in Scotland, the latest in a string of high-profile cyber-attacks on large organisations
But what about smaller companies which don’t recognise the risks? Undoubtedly, some of these companies have been affected, yet it is only the attacks on well-known organisations which get publicized.
