Why Your SMB Needs Cybersecurity
For small businesses, it can be tempting to postpone cybersecurity efforts. There are many common excuses: “There’s so much to do,” “There’s not enough budget,” “Our business is too small to target.” But right now, cybersecurity is a must-have for every business.
Small businesses are not only at risk of cyberattacks, but social engineering attacks as well. According to a study by security company Barracuda Networks, small businesses with fewer than 100 employees are three times more likely to experience social engineering attacks than larger businesses.
In fact, your business may already have been attacked. The Barracuda study found that one in five organizations had at least one account compromised in 2021. Hackers need only one account to launch from, so an attack can spread without you knowing if you don’t have the right detection and protection tools in place.
Here's some advice for small business leaders:
The damage caused by one compromised account can be devastating for a small business. But, your business can be protected with the help of a managed service provider like Nice Guy Technology.
