Security breaches happen every day. Although most of the headlines would lead you to believe that large enterprise corporations, such as Target or Home Depot, are most susceptible, studies have shown that it’s the small- and medium-sized businesses that are really taking the hits. In fact, 62% of all cyberattack victims are SMBs. Small businesses are particularly vulnerable because they may not have the resources to prevent an attack or they may believe they would never be a target. But they are mistaken.
Your company’s data -- employee information, client files, accounting files, etc. -- are worth a pretty penny on the black market. Data breaches occur for any number of reasons, including human error, spearfishing scams and social engineering scams. And the costs associated with these breaches can reach millions of dollars in legal fees, settlements, lost business, damaged reputation and more.
