The Small Firms Association released their 6th annual crime survey which focuses on how crime impacts on small businesses in Ireland.  An interesting point in the press release highlights that the companies surveyed reported an increase in online crime with the average cost on an incident being €2,250 and it appears the largest cost was €6,000.

Worryingly though the survey also stated that 26% of companies surveyed reported they had been the victim of online scams.  These were either 419, advance fee or business directory scams, clearly highlighting a major need for these companies to receive appropriate security awareness training.
