Would You Be Ready?

18th March 2019

Today marks the start of Would You Be Ready? Week - an initiative led by Business in the Community Northern Ireland (BITCNI) to help businesses prepare for cyber security attacks and other threats to their operations. 

Dixons have held ISO external verification for our Business Continuity Management (BCM) systems since 2010. With trained deputies in place for all roles, we test our BCM systems and train our employees and sub-contractors annually. Our systems ensure that we can respond effectively to any potential disruption, limiting the impact on our business, our Clients and our supply chain. 

A report from BITCNI highlights that 40% of small businesses have not undertaken any cyber security action in the last 12 months, with around a third having no strategy in place to cope with the impact of a cyber-attack. 

BITCNI is challenging businesses to take its free five-minute Readiness Test to help them gauge how prepared their business is to respond to cyber-attack and other threats. The BITCNI will then provide quick and easy tips to help businesses be better prepared. To take the test, please visit www.wouldyoubeready.org.uk/.
