Size matters right? Think again! To hackers no business is too small
The size of your business doesn’t matter to hackers. small businesses are just as vulnerable to cyber-attacks as large corporations in fact probably more.
You may have noticed on the news that many large corporations have been hacked in recent years. Target Corp., Home Depot, and J.P Morgan Chase are just a few examples of corporations with major security breaches in recent years.
Small businesses like yours may not be as lucrative a target as the larger businesses, but they are still targeted by hackers. Small businesses are more vulnerable because they often have less IT security in place to protect their assets and business data so are far easier prey to the bad guys with less chance of being caught.
Think your business is too small to be hacked? Think again!
We’ve all read stories in the news about big businesses being hacked.
And it’s tempting to think that smaller businesses like yours are safe. That cyber criminals are only targeting big corporations.
But anyone making that assumption is putting themselves and their business at risk. The fact is that small businesses can be far easier prey for attackers.
They might not make the news; but attacks involving automated tools, ransomware and identity theft are a continuing risk for all small businesses.
With potential financial penalties and huge loss of reputation, it isn’t hard to imagine how such attacks would be disastrous for businesses without very deep pockets.
That makes employee awareness, ongoing training, and robust password management vital. And you must keep all systems, antivirus software and firewalls constantly up to date.
