I urge all small business owners to download a copy of this information booklet from the Government.Cyber security: what small businesses need to know – Publications – Inside Government – GOV.UK.
This page documents the security breaches that have been experienced by small business over the last year.
Such security breaches could put all sorts of important data at risk – both yours and that of your clients.

Well, who sends out computer viruses? There seems to be nothing to be gained from such online vandalism and yet individuals still seem to get a kick from it.
But there is also industrial espionage – a current or former employee with a grudge, a competitor looking to get an edge, or just a simple accident where someone pressed the wrong button.
