Most people see cybersecurity as something that only governments and large corporations need to worry about. For example, recent news stories have been highlighting cyber attacks on major entities such as Equifax and England’s National Health Service. However, businesses of all sizes are at risk of a cyber security breach.
According to the Department of Homeland Security, 40% of cyber attacks target businesses with fewer than 500 employees. In addition, about one in five small and midsize businesses reported a cyber attack over a two-year period. Computer crime has now bypassed illegal drugs as the country’s #1 criminal money-maker, making it in every business owner’s best interest to safeguard their organization as much as possible.
