Shared networks allow businesses and homes to function more efficiently, but if not properly protected they can be a disaster waiting to happen.
The more users and devices attached to a network, the greater the risk, which explains why hackers relentlessly target small businesses to find a chink in the armour - and very often they are successful. Damage related to cybercrime is projected to hit £6 trillion annually by 2021.
Hackers have many ways of breaking into a network, but by far the most common is via spear phishing emails. Three in every four organisations have experienced a phishing attack, and the consequences can be disastrous - theft of sensitive data, exposure to malware, disruption of business operations.
