70% of security breaches target small businesses.

So, what constitutes a Small-Mid-sized Business (SMB)? According to SMB Research, an SMB constitutes 1-999 employees or workers. That’s it.

Now you’re thinking, “I don’t have anything they want, right?” Wrong.

Business has changed over the years. Companies must monetize customer data to thrive in today’s competitive world… and that customer data is usually what they are after.

Cyber attackers aren’t just looking for credit card numbers, they are looking for financial credentials, bank accounts, email address, encryption certificates, passwords… any kind of personal data they can get their hands on. Why? To create a phishing site, steal money from your mutual fund, send email scams, hijack your social media account and ruin your reputation.

If that isn’t reason enough for protection, cyber criminals now automate their attacks. For $299 they can buy malware that’s guaranteed to escape anti-virus detection. And for $350, they can get an email list that will send out thousands of phishing emails with one click. All it takes is for one of your employees to click and cyber criminal has hijacked your network, stolen your data and sold it to the highest bidder.

A cyber attack is malicious and very hard to come back from once it has occurred. The average breach remediation costs a business $600,000; not to mention the hefty fines the government will levy against you.
