Six out of ten Northamptonshire firms have been victims of cyber crime - that's according to a report from the Federation of Small Businesses.
The figures show that on average they've been hacked on four occasions, costing each business almost £3,000.
The FSB said small firms are unfairly carrying the cost of cyber crime.
Small firms take their cyber security responsibility very seriously, but often they are the least able to bear the cost of doing so.
Smaller businesses have limited resources, time and expertise to deal with ever-evolving and increasing digital attacks.
