There are 25 million SMEs in Europe, employing 100 million people. Half of the EU’s GDP comes from SMEs.

Unfortunately though, according to ENISA, 57% of SMEs who experience a cyber-attack have to close their business operations as a direct result.

Cyber-attacks are not about large companies only – SMEs are targets too….

EIT Digital, the Global Digital Foundation and Huawei is now producing a Q&A guide promoting cybersecurity for SMEs in Europe.

This guide will help improve awareness levels for staff working in SMEs about cybersecurity and how to mitigate risks from cyber-attacks.

This event is organised by EIT, Global Digital Foundation and Huawei with EURACTIV as Media Partner.
