Small Business: Cyber Security Survey


The Small Business Cyber Security Survey was conceived in response to the business questions that was being put Lancaster University around the topic of cyber security. For a number of years Lancaster University has been running an annual conference focusing on business issues around cyber security culminating in the Cyber Security Conference series [20112012] run in partnership with the Cyber Security working group of theInformation Communication Technology Knowledge Transfer Network (ICT KTN) for the past two years. The conference in 2012 provided an ideal platform to gather information in the hope of providing a valuable resource for businesses to understand cyber security concerns and issues that the region as a whole is facing. This is the first report in what is hoped will become a longitudinal study of these business issues.
