Cybersecurity and SMEs: Assessing threats and increasing resilience

Digital risk is one of the most significant yet underestimated threats facing SMEs in Europe. In the age of Big Data, online trading and market digitisation, no business can escape exposure to at least some form of digital risk. Businesses that suffer cybersecurity incidents face repercussions that range from negative financial outcomes to reputation damage.

The COVID-19 crisis, like any other unexpected global crisis, has given rise to new forms of cybercrime, to which SMEs are especially vulnerable. Addressing cyber threats and the needs for SMEs is more critical than ever before.

Our aim is that this webinar will accelerate the work of private and public sector actors to find solutions to protect SMEs from cybercrime and lessen its impact.
