Providing services and resources tailored to SMEs.

Providing Cybersecurity to SMEs

SMEs are vulnerable to cybersecurity threats as they do not have the necessary in-house skill sets and knowledge to protect themselves. Further they lack the financial resources required to engage professional cybersecurity services. In the event of a successful attack, SMEs suffer proportionally higher costs than larger enterprises. A 2022 cyber insurance industry report stated 50% of SMEs experienced successful attacks, with one in five companies having their solvency threatened by a successful attack. 

The FSeC-CaaS is a unit within APU's Forensics and Cyber Security Research Center (FSeC). FSeC-CaaS is staffed by a dedicated team of cybersecurity professionals and top-performing enthusiastic students drawn from the 1,300 students currently enrolled in APU's Cybersecurity BSc and Master programs. FSeC-CaaS provides a range of cybersecurity services to SMEs allowing them to benefit from the latest security technologies and best practices. Internally, FSEC-CaaS conducts vulnerability assessments and penetration testing on APU's own extensive infrastructure and systems.

FSEC-CaaS is an APU Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) initiative. As well as improving cybersecurity at an local industry level, the FSEC-CaaS will provide suitably qualified cybersecurity students with industry experience.
