Hackers are a constant. Exploits, security holes and attack vectors change constantly giving hackers greater opportunities to break in. Every small and medium size business (SMB) should be assessing their internal cyber security posture continuously. For SMBs that process healthcare patient data ( HIPAA) or Credit Card data (PCI) understanding and maintaining a sound cyber security posture for themselves and their customers/clients is critical.
Hackers are targeting small and medium size businesses (SMBs) as a primary targets. SMBs may feel that they aren’t likely to be a target due to their size and that hackers couldn’t possibly be interested in what they do – but in reality the exact opposite is true. Hackers prey on the knowledge that SMBs tend to have lower defenses than larger organizations, many do not have dedicated IT staff, many do not have adequate system backups ( making them a prime target for a ransomware attack) and many do not invest in cyber security awareness training of employees. Ignoring cyber security is a costly oversight, the cost of being hacked could range from minor inconvenience, reputation damage, loss of customer data, fines and ultimately company closure.

As referenced in an article on Forbes.com “More than half (55 percent) of the nearly 600 small- and medium-sized businesses surveyed by the Ponemon Institute reported being hit by a cyber attack in the past year, and 50 percent said they experienced a data breach involving customer and employee information over the same time period. It cost these companies an average of $879,582 in damage to or theft of IT assets and an average of $955,429 due to the disruption of operations, according to Ponemon’s “State of Cybersecurity in Small and Medium-Sized Business,” which was released in June 2016.”
