The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has published a guide which collects their recently published guidance for small businesses into one document – Cyber Security:Small Business Guide  “How to improve cyber security within your organisation – quickly, easily and at low cost” and is introduced by Ciaran Martin the CEO of NCSC as follows:

If you’re a small or medium-sized enterprise (SME) then there’s around a 1 in 2 chance that you’ll experience a cyber security breach. For micro / small businesses, that could result in costs of around £1,400.
Following the advice in this guide will significantly increase your protection from the most common types of cyber crime. The 5 topics covered are easy to understand and cost little to implement. This guide can’t guarantee protection from all types of cyber attack, but it does show how easy it can be to protect your organisation’s data, assets, and reputation.
