Despite the spike in attacks on the SMB market, many small and mid-size companies are still not giving security enough attention. The mindset that “it won’t happen to us” or “we’re too small to be a target” is a leading contributor to the increased incidents in this marketspace.
Did you know that 70% of recent attacks have been against small and mid-size businesses?
The truth is that hackers do not discriminate.
When things are working fine or when when time and resources are limited, ramping up security practices may not be top priority. But when you look at the consequences associated with an attack, it might change your mind.
As we’ve seen in recent headlines, major events such as these are costing CEOs their jobs and millions of dollars to recover – if they do at all. Remediation costs, legal fees, regulatory fines, loss of customers, business disruption and a damaged reputation are just some of the negative effects imposed by a security breach. With so much at risk, cybersecurity mustn’t be ignored.
Successful protection in today’s business climate begins with a top-down approach. Business owners need to make the commitment to maintain the highest level of security possible, and most importantly, act on it. The first step is recognizing security must be integrated across all areas of your business and next is to proactively plan to mitigate your risks.
