To select the most appropriate measures for your money, you need to understand the security risks to your business assets or activities. Consider your exposure to security threats, such as:

  • Theft of data or equipment
  • Espionage
  • Fire or floods
  • Equipment failures
  • Computer viruses and malware
  • Computer hacking

Assess how vulnerable your systems, equipment and premises might be to these threats, and identify the best means of reducing the risk.

Small enterprises are the engine of our economy, generating innovation, employment and wealth, so your security matters. Data breaches are bad for business, so every enterprise needs security. In the past, this was expensive, because security products were designed for companies with deep pockets and teams of experts. But that’s changed. New cloud-based services are fast to deploy, safe and easy to use. What’s more, they’re even more affordable.

With growing demands from customers and regulators for security, now is a good time to invest in security. Leading cloud-based security services deliver a professional level of security assurance in a form that fits the circumstances and pockets of small businesses.

This slideshow features nine steps, identified by Qualys, that businesses can take to reduce risks at an affordable price.
