Protecting Your Company and Customers from a Cyber Attack
Cybercriminals get better at what they do every day, while people are becoming less forgiving toward businesses that fail to protect their data. Around 30 percent of consumers surveyed by Bank of America said they wouldn’t return to a small business that suffered a data breach, up from 20 percent two years ago. The same survey found that breaches of small businesses are becoming more common and more costly. More than 1 in 5 SMBs reported a data breach within the last 24 months, up 17 percent from two years ago. And 41 percent of small businesses said they’d suffered a breach that cost more than $50,000 to recover from. Numbers like this should serve as a wake-up call. Every small business needs to educate themselves and develop a security strategy to protect their data.
