IT SECURITY GUIDE FOR SMALL BUSINESSES
July 9 2012.



The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) has published a new guide for small and medium sized businesses, showing the steps they can take to help make their IT systems secure.

The guide, which covers topics such as physical security, anti-virus and employee awareness, can help small businesses keep personal data secure and avoid a serious data breach that could see the ICO impose a monetary penalty of up to £500,000.

The ICO's IT security guidance is available on the ICO website at http://bit.ly/M2rqj
