Around four in ten small businesses and two in ten charities in the UK suffered a cyber breach or attack in the past 12 months. Most cyber criminals exploit basic security and human vulnerabilities. Businesses and charities can significantly reduce their chances of falling victim by following simple cyber security steps. 

As part of a Home Office funded project we are offering small businesses and charities, across the UK, a free cyber-security health check. The health check will walk you through the latest advice from the National Cyber Security Centre and give personalized advice on steps to improve your cyber security. 

This project is a collaboration between researchers at Coventry University, De Montfort University and the University of Kent, with expertise in computing, behavioural economics and finance. The project is funded by the Home Office and is run in collaboration with Kent Police and the National Cyber Security Centre.
