Small and medium-sized enterprises need to make sure that they have up to date anti-virus and anti-spyware software on their computer systems - as a security breach could have a potentially "devastating" effect, one expert has said.Tony Neate, managing director of Get Safe Online, claims that an increasing dependency technology is making internet security an absolute necessity."Over the last few years more and more small businesses are becoming dependent on technology," he commented."For the companies that use the internet as part of their day to day work, it can be devastating, he continued before adding that "if companies are involved in transacting or advertising online", they will perhaps have to "take more action in terms of getting third party security".A recent report from Get Safe Online revealed that around 44 per cent of UK small businesses have been the victim of online crime, such as data theft and identity fraud.© Adfero Ltd
