When it comes to cybercrime many small businesses have the common misconception that they are safe from attacks; they feel that they are too small to be relevant. The fact is, more than 60% of cybercrime attacks are directed at small businesses; that’s 3 out of 5!

Did you know that cybercrime surpassed drug crime as the most lucrative criminal enterprise in the world? The United States lacks treaties with countries where hackers are birthed and operate such as North Korea, China, Russia, and Ukraine. In these countries, cybercrime is an actual business! They have business plans, set objectives, plan attacks and train an “assembly line” of hackers who are trained to do one thing: hack your small business. Why?  Because hacking a smaller business is far easier than hacking a larger business that has the money, time and resources to protect their network.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking your business is too small to be relevant. You are relevant.
