Basic cyber security controls for small businesses

This checklist is designed as a tool for the small business looking for some assurance (but not guarantee) that they have addressed the basic and essential cyber controls that a typical expert authority would expect to see in place in the smaller firm. That said, such a tool cannot exhaustively cover every eventuality as cyber risk profiles differ between businesses added to which cyber crime is constantly and rapidly evolving and mutating. Whilst the great majority of attacks are mounted by relatively less sophisticated individuals, more advanced or targeted attacks than this checklist addresses call for additional measures.
