You'll likely have seen the news already - a cyber incident at Royal Mail has forced it to halt all international post indefinitely, causing disruption across the country. 

The BBC reports that Royal Mail has asked its customer not to send letters and parcels overseas until it has resolved the issue. While domestic deliveries are unaffected, there may also be delays to mail entering the UK. 

While unclear at the moment whether this is a deliberate cyberattack or a technical glitch, the incident is a stark reminder that the time to act is now. Regardless of size, or industry, cybercriminals can find a way to infiltrate a business unless protection is put in place. For SMEs in particular, it can be a constant juggling act between needing to upgrade their cybersecurity posture and having a finite budget and resources.   Here's what Phil Bindley, Managing Director of Cloud & Security said:

“With the current economic climate, many companies are looking to make cost savings across all areas. However, neglecting your security can have repercussions by putting your business and digital supply chain in a vulnerable position for cybercriminals to exploit.'
