As a business owner you probably have heard of other businesses’ websites being hit by ransomware or getting hacked, and you may want to know what exactly this is and what you can do to reduce the risk of an attack on your business.

The guidance materials covers a variety of issues including if you have suspicions that an employee is stealing information from your business and what steps you can take to prove it. You should then look at the employment section to find out more about the process you must follow with any employee disciplinary action.

Other topics include dealing with malicious emails, what to do if your laptop is stolen or damaged and assessing the cyber risks for your business.
