Jun 27, 2017 9:00:00 AM

We all have our favourite apps we can’t live without, and most of us also have an A+ idea for a business app we know would give our business leverage.

If this is still not syncing for you, or perhaps the incidents seen by Wannacry didn’t scare you, perhaps this will:

Cybercriminals like to target SME’s. 43% of cyber attacks target small businesses.
