Security for SMEs

  • All about
    IT security

IT security is essential for businesses, so it is hardly surprising that 69% of SME decision makers name it their most important priority alongside day-to-day business.1 Contrary to what one might expect, SMEs are often the target of hacker attacks: in 2017, one third of all Swiss SMEs fell victim to cyber attacks.2 The consequences can be serious, often including system failures, loss of data and financial losses, not to mention damage to a company’s reputation. However, the security risk posed by careless or insufficiently sensitised employees should not be underestimated either.



On this page, you will find immediate assistance and tools to optimise your IT security, additional information and articles – indeed, everything you need to know about IT security for SMEs.
