In this project, we were tasked with on-boarding a new customer to our Cyber Security Operations Centre (C-SOC).

Last year, research showed that more than 70% of cyber-attacks were directed at SMEs, and that almost half of all small businesses reported a successful attempt to infiltrate their system.
