• ‘Overlooked’ mid-market needs to step-up cybersecurity

        • Mid-size organisations are increasingly vulnerable to cyberattacks and need to develop intelligent strategies to de-risk, according to Commercial IT Services.

          The IT services specialist says many emerging cybersecurity technologies are heavily geared towards larger corporates. This puts their mid-size counterparts at a disadvantage, and makes them more attractive to cybercriminals using tactics such as ransomware.

          The most progressive and robust cybersecurity solutions typically require a level of investment which is not realistic for mid-market firms employing 100 to 1,000 staff. These businesses also lack the scale and financial resource to employ full-time cybersecurity teams.

          However, it is possible to take a proportionate approach, combining suitable technologies, with procedures to minimise risk and reduce negative impact if an attack occurs. Commercial IT Services has launched an online guide to assist organisations facing these complex cybersecurity decisions.

          Richard Keatinge, Chief Operations Officer at Commercial IT Services said, “cybercriminals are very clever about selecting the most lucrative targets. As large corporates professionalise their cybersecurity defences, the threat level for mid-market organisations is escalating. There is no magic shield, but it is possible to manage and mitigate risk with an iterative long-term approach. Our guide will help mid-size company directors make better strategic decisions to protect their business.”
