Cybersecurity Awareness survey 2018: Small companies most often faced with phishing and acquisition fraud

In 2018, more than half (52%) of small businesses have tried to get money or data from small businesses. This is evident from the Cyber Security awareness survey of Alert Online among SMEs that is available today. Phishing and acquisition fraud are the most common methods here. And although the threat to small businesses is increasing, they are increasingly less concerned about their digital security. That is why Minister Grapperhaus, at the start of the Week of Security, calls on small companies to better arm themselves against internet crime.

In 2017, 65% of small businesses with one to nine employees still have little concerns about digital security in the business. In 2018 this percentage has risen to 75%. The carefree of small businesses about their digital security is unjustified. That is why Minister Grapperhaus of Justice and Security at the start of the Week of Security urges small companies to better protect themselves against internet crime. "More and more small businesses are also working digitally: orders and payments are made online, business processes are controlled by computers, offering opportunities to do the job easier and faster, but also making a company vulnerable." Only one employee needs a traffic link. and the company is at a standstill, with major financial damage and a dent in reputation, which is why I am still earning 1.2 million euros this year for training and information for SMEs. what risks there are as soon as they know what measures they can take themselves. "

1 click on the 5 phishing mail recipients
Phishing and acquisition fraud are the most common forms of internet crime in business. Small companies in particular are vulnerable to this. Over a third (37%) of the small businesses were struggling with phishing emails, in which the recipient was tempted to click on a link or attachment. 1 in 5 actually did. A quarter (23%) had to deal with acquisition fraud, also known as ghost invoices for services or products that were not delivered. It is striking that 56% of small businesses that are confronted with cybercrime do not take extra security measures, such as virus software or install or update firewall, make passwords more complex, back up or report the incident.

"The digital resilience of SMEs is not right. One in five SMEs has already become the victim of internet crime, "says Rutger Leukfeldt, lecturer in cybersecurity in SMEs at De Haagse Hogeschool and senior researcher cybercrime at the NSCR. "We see that smaller companies in particular take technical and organizational measures less often. This not only increases the chances of becoming a victim, but the impact is also great if things go wrong."
