2017 has seen several cybersecurity meltdowns so far. If you’d like to get caught up, read “The Biggest Cybersecurity Disasters of 2017 So Far”. There is an epidemic taking place in the world of technology today. The concerning part is that it’s only getting worse. For every headlining breach in major media, there are thousands that go unreported. Cyber-attacks on small businesses now consist of 43% of all cyber-attacks.
Joseph Steinburg from Inc. summarizes that small business owners continue to believe they have nothing to worry about
“Small business owners frequently assume that hackers have little interest in attacking their organizations- ‘after all,’ they reason, ‘what data do I have that a hacker could consider valuable?'”
Unfortunately some of you out there have learned this hard lesson (about 55% according to Small Business Trends). The odds are ever increasing that most small business owners will have this experience as their business grows and they rely more and more on technology. Your business data doesn’t have to be important to a hacker. If it’s important to YOU and YOUR BUSINESS, then it’s worth the effort on their part to find a way to block you from accessing it (or deleting it completely) to get what they want; money, information, etc.
But if you’re like most small business owners, you have a million things on your plate all the time. The last thing you want to worry about is someone hacking your network.
