If you’ve been watching the news on recent #cyberattacks and wondering what they mean for your business, you’re not alone.
This recent article by ACP’s Christopher Dean underscores the ongoing operational challenges and financial impacts faced by these organizations. It raises the question of whether small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) could also be vulnerable to cyber attacks, providing three key lessons for #SMBs:
1.) Cyber crime is more akin to a long-term infiltration than a quick burglary, with cyber criminals being patient and methodical, often posing as friends or co-workers to gain trust before launching an attack.
2.) Statistics show that #cybercriminals are increasingly targeting small businesses, with potentially devastating financial consequences.
3.) SMBs hold valuable #data that can be exploited, and they often lack the security resources of larger corporations.
The lesson is not to be fearful of cyber crime, but to be proactive in improving cyber security posture to help ensure your organization’s safety. Seek assistance of trusted cyber security experts and take the necessary steps for assessing and addressing security gaps to protect against cyber threats today.
