Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are vulnerable to attacks by cyber-criminals but few are doing enough to tackle the problem, according to an IT security expert.

Addressing the situation in the build up to this year's e-Crime Wales Summit in Newport on June 11th, Jason Hart, senior vice-president at security company CRYPTOCard, said that firms all over the world are discussing e-crime issues, but only a small number are doing anything about them.

"Business people need to understand how vulnerable the vast majority of them are from rudimentary attacks, and how frequently they take place," he added.

"Most importantly, they need to understand that effective remedies needn't be complicated, expensive or technically complex."

The event is part of an initiative in Wales aiming to tackle the growing threat of theft, malicious attack and other crimes against businesses.

Earlier this month, David Lennan, chairman of the Work Wise UK Summit, claimed that teleworking can reduce the effect businesses have on the environment.
