Cyber security experts CQR have launched a new guide to help organisations navigate through the cyber maze.

Oxfordshire based cyber security consultants CQR have published a new guide which covers the 9 key areas that can help protect organisations from the most common cyber threats. Despite a Government report finding that almost half of UK businesses were victims of a cyber security breach or attack in 2018*, many organisations find it difficult to know where to start with the fast-evolving area of cyber security.

As part of their company mission to help “Make the world a safer place”, CQR have produced a free practical guide to help businesses start their cyber security journey. It includes practical tips to help get businesses started as well as clear, jargon-free explanations of key areas such as patching, multi-factor authentication and application whitelisting. The guide can be viewed here 

Simon Glover, CQR’s Operations Director said: “With the average cost of a cyber security breach estimated at over £2.5m, the consequences can be catastrophic. That’s why we’ve produced this guide to highlight the key areas of cyber security all organisations need to be aware of and act on. We’ve helped hundreds of organisations worldwide keep their data and systems safe over the last 15 years and hope this guide can help many more understand the basics.”
