SECTION ON MACHINE AND SYSTEM SAFETY

Cyber Security Fact Sheets for Small Enterprises

More than 350,000 new malware programmes are detected every day. Large organizations are not the only ones at risk for cyberattacks. Small businesses using digital networks can just as easily find themselves victims of hackers. Any device or machine with an internet connection can have many security gaps. A malfunction or a failure of IT systems can very quickly damage an organization’s public image, compromise important data, and adversely impact production. Reasonable IT protection can, however, be achieved through relatively simple measures.
 
The ISSA Prevention Section on Machine and System Safety has developed two fact sheets:

  1. Cyber Security in Small Enterprises
  2. Safe Passwords in Small Enterprises

These sheets describe measures to help small enterprises reduce the risk of cyberattacks.
