Hey there, SMBs (small – medium business) owners! It’s time for a reality check. You might think you’re flying under the radar when it comes to cybersecurity attacks, but guess what? You’re not. In the cyber world, no one is too small to notice, and that’s where StrataNorth comes in.
The Invisible Bullseye: Small Businesses
SMBs often operate under the illusion that cybercriminals are only interested in big fish. But here’s the harsh truth: you’re actually the perfect target. Cyber attackers know that smaller enterprises might have less robust cybersecurity, making them vulnerable and, unfortunately, more attractive. Actually, bad actors are betting that you won’t have the technology, insight, or processes in place to protect your business; to them you’re easy prey. While bad actors that want a big pay out may target large organizations that comes with more effort, skill, and risk. Attacking a small business is easier in their eyes especially if as a business they have left themselves exposed.
The Problem? You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know
The real challenge is that many small businesses don’t even realize they have cybersecurity vulnerabilities. You’re doing your thing, running your business, and the tech stuff feels like a mysterious black box. You’re not alone in this – many small business owners don’t have the time, resources, or know-how to stay on top of their cybersecurity game.
