Cut through the noise: How to actually secure your small or mid-sized business from threats with minimal investment (Introduction)
Cyber security. For most small or mid-sized business owners, it’s the topic of nightmares. You turn on the news or read online every day about another breach or hack that took down some large corporation making them spend millions or even billions to get back online. And while it rarely makes the news, over the past few years, small businesses have already become the prime target for new attacks for one primary reason: They are easy targets.
“On Average, small businesses spend less than $500 on cybersecurity per year.”
Small businesses have become prime targets for attackers because of the limited resources and typically no IT staff to protect them. These attackers can leverage even the most remedial tactics and leave virtually no digital fingerprints with no systems to track or alert on their activity. Most of the time, no one even knows they were there. And for these bad actors, from a risk perspective, that is the most favorable outcome.
However, despite this, this blog series is not about painting a picture of doom and gloom. Instead, this eight-part series will describe real-world actions you can take right now to reduce your risk and protect your employees and your customers.
