Why You Should Pay Attention to Cybersecurity

Smaller businesses have become targets for cybercriminals because criminals know they have fewer defense resources than large enterprises.  If cybercriminals can breach a small business and steal credentials (e.g., for banking accounts or email access), they can use that information to steal money directly, create attacks on its customers and work their way around the business ecosystem in other nefarious ways.

The 2016 State of Small & Medium-Sized Business Cybersecurity report, independently conducted by Ponemon Institute, LLC and sponsored by Keeper Security, surveyed 598 individuals in companies with 1,000 or fewer employees. The survey revealed 50 percent of Small & Medium-Sized Businesses have been breached in the past 12 months.  Read more on why small and mid-sized businesses should pay attention to cyber security: https://staysafeonline.org/cybersecure-business/.
