No matter how big or small your business is, cyber attacks and data breaches are real threats that are becoming even more frequent in our increasingly digital world. Cyber attacks are specifically on the rise for small and midsize businesses as they present more vulnerabilities than larger organizations. According to a Ponemon 2017 report, cyber attacks cost small and medium-sized businesses an average of $2,235,000.
When you hear, “cyber attack,” you likely think of data breaches at a large company or retailer, but do you ever consider that you could be personally attacked?
