Small Business Cybersecurity
Why is Cybersecurity so important to small businesses? In today’s world just about everything is done online or over a computer network and Wi-Fi. This is great for productivity, immediate results, and ease of life tasks, but the problem is the devices we use and the network we connect to are not safe and secure. For small businesses, the process of keeping up these as well as new technologies, security updates and fixes, and the knowledge to protect them is a very challenging task. However, it is mandatory in order to protect our devices and our personal information from cyber threats. Cybersecurity in your small business can help prevent cyber-attacks, data breaches, lost information, and identity theft. According to the Ponemon Institute’s 2017 State of Cybersecurity in Small & Medium-Sized Businesses report, the percentage of small businesses that have experienced a cyber-attack in the past 12 months is up from 55% in 2016 to 61% in 2017.
