Small businesses are under attack. Right now, extremely dangerous and well-funded international cybercrime rings are using sophisticated software systems to hack into small businesses to steal credit cards, client information, and swindle money directly out of your bank account. Some are even being funded by their own government to attack small, virtually defenseless businesses.
Don’t think you’re in danger because you’re “small” and not a big target like a Target or Home Depot? Think again. 82,000 NEW malware threats are being released every single day and HALF of the cyber-attacks occurring are aimed at small businesses; you just don’t hear about it because big company = big news. But small businesses come under attack – and fall victim – every single day.
In fact, the National Cyber Security Alliance reports that one in five small businesses have been victims of cybercrime in the last year – and that number is growing rapidly as more businesses utilize unsecured wireless networks, mobile devices, and store more information. Quite simply, most small businesses are low-hanging fruit to hackers due to their lack of adequate security systems.
As an IT company supporting small businesses, we work day and night to protect our clients from these attacks – and unfortunately we see, on a regular basis, hardworking entrepreneurs being financially devastated by these lawless scumbags. We are determined to warn as many businesses as possible of the very real threats facing their organization so they have a chance to protect themselves and everything they’ve worked so hard to achieve.
