UK.gov aims to demystify security for SMEs
UK online for business has launched a security section on its Web site, designed to help small business keep abreast of the latest Internet threats and how to combat them.
Security advice is often too technical, particularly for smaller companies with limited resources. UK online, a DTI-led partnership between Government and industry, which promotes the use of e-commerce in the UK, hopes its advice will be easier to understand.
