Britain's small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are being offered free IT security advice and publications at a new government website.
The site, www.ukonlineforbusiness.gov.uk/infosec, offers general advice on security issues such as virus and hacking attacks, employee misuse, and security standard BS7799.
It also links to Department of Trade and Industry security studies, free government publications and an online survey to determine how prepared a company is for electronic attacks.
"We've aimed this at smaller companies as large organisations tend to have a more coherent security strategy already in place," said a spokesman for the Stationery Office, which developed the site.
"While the site is structured broadly around the BS7799 standard it is meant as a starting point, and we will develop case studies, online forums and more help as time goes on," he added.
