Nearly all SMBs suffer from serious IT and data compliance issues

Small businesses risk major fines over compliance failures.

The IT systems of almost all small and medium-sized businesses (SMB) in the UK suffer from serious vulnerabilities, a new report asserts
These systems are vulnerable in a number of ways, the report states. Sometimes, there are “inherent data protection issues”, such as insecure storage of financial details. In other scenarios, organizations fail to secure personal data, which is “vigorously protected” under GDPR. And some businesses also fail to properly secure their software with updates and patches.

Given the findings, it’s no wonder that 68 percent of medium-sized UK firms suffered a cybersecurity attack or security breach over the past 12 months.
