Sharp UK today releases new findings identifying cyber security training as a cause for concern amongst UK businesses, as a third of SMB owners admit to providing no training or resources for employees. Despite this, two-thirds of those surveyed said that human error was a worry for the welfare of their business’ digital infrastructure and security.

Sharp undertook the research to better understand the efforts made by small business owners to reinforce their cyber security in the aftermath of Covid-19 and lockdown, and the impending return to the office for some staff. The results of the research show that a proportion of the SMB community, a sector that is reportedly the focus of 43% of all cyber-attacks, may be unprepared.
