Naq partners with The SME Club

01 Apr 2021

The SME club is a free and independent resource for all UK small and medium businesses. The club was set up to help support SME owners with every aspect of running their business and help connect members with other business owners, directors and experts.

Naq Cyber is so excited to partner up with the SME Club to empower small businesses and their teams to protect themselves, their systems and their sensitive data.

We have not only created a helpful cyber security and GDPR hub on the SME Club website, but we are also giving a 50% discount on all Naq subscriptions for SME Club members.

In 2020, 61% of SMEs experienced a cyber attack costing on average £10 000 but up to £100 000 for the bigger SMEs. This sort of sum could be business ending for a lot of SMEs and is exacerbated by the COVID-19 crisis. 

“We are incredibly excited about working with the SME Club. Whilst we read every day about cyber attacks against governments and large companies, we must remember that SMEs form the biggest part of the UK economy. Unfortunately cyber criminals also know this” Nadia Kadhim, Naq Cyber CEO

Nadia continued: “SMEs are experts in their own field, whether it be accounting, marketing, farming or anything else. They are using this expertise to do great work for their customers. They do not have the time, or resources, to spend over 100 hours searching for and spending over £18 000 on cyber security products, services, consultants and lawyers. This is the amount that SMEs in any sector would have to spend in order to achieve a basic level of security and GDPR compliance.” 

“The SME Club, through its tireless campaigning representing and supporting SMEs, has recognised the importance of cyber security for their members and we are excited about working with The SME Club to ensure the continued success of its member base”.
