Yorkshire Cyber Security Cluster

Get help and advice on your essential cyber security

More online businesses, especially SMEs (small and medium sized enterprises) are being targeted by organised criminal gangs, including terrorists in order to get hold of financial information and intellectual property. Stealing commercial ideas by hacking into business systems and networks is a growing global problem. SMEs need to take preventative steps to protect their own business interests.

Cyber Security Vouchers

The good news is that UK government is trying to help SMEs. It has provided a scheme whereby companies can get up to £5000 in grants to implement cyber security essentials.

Further information on how to get cyber essential compliant is available by contacting SPARC.
