1). THREAT INTEL: SUPPLY CHAIN SECURITY – The majority of global organisations (54%) suffered a software supply chain attack in the past year, and most are unable to keep up with the growing risk landscape according to Synopsys who have released their ‘State of Software Supply Chain Security Risk’ report. The Report also found that 50% of organisations took more than a month to respond to an attack, and one in five said that their organisation is not effective in its ability to detect and respond to these attacks.

2). THREAT INTEL: DARK WEB – Are your SMEs Credentials for sale on the DarkWeb? SMEs (Small & Medium Sized Enterprises) Are further confirmed as the primary targets for OcCGs (Organised Cyber-Crime Groups) The Small Business sector has gone from “No real risk” to “Hyperisk”.  According to Threat Labs Kaspersky an SME Pays a Ransom every few seconds, Cyber attacks are now the leading cause of bankruptcy in SMEs and 80% of all Data Breaches are due to weak or stolen Passwords.

3). WHAT IS A BLOCKCHAIN?  Understanding Blockchain Technology – CyberKPI: Blockchain is a distributed database or ledger shared among a computer network’s nodes. It was created by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008 for Bitcoin transactions. This technology plays a significant role in enhancing Cybersecurity for SMEs, offering a secure and immutable platform for transactions and data storage. Blockchain technology offers SME’s enhanced data security and ensures the integrity of transactions, addressing concerns related to Cybersecurity.
