image-security-no-one-immune-to-cybercrimeQuick Tip: Get serious about IT security awareness and employee security training.

Why: This is what every hacker hopes you believe: “We’re small…nobody wants to hack us.” This is the #1 reason why people (companies) get hacked. They dismiss the importance of IT security because they’re only a “small business.” This is simply no longer true.

One thing is for certain:  NO ONE is immune to cybercrime. In fact, two in five small businesses fall victim to cybercrime and that number grows every year. Plus, half of all cyber-attacks are aimed at small businesses BECAUSE they make themselves low-hanging fruit with sloppy or non-existent security protocols.

And one more critical point to ponder: If YOU aren’t giving IT security the attention it deserves, how do you think your CLIENTS would feel about that? If for no other reason, you need to do it to protect your clients’ data, even if the only information about them you store is an email address. If YOUR system gets compromised, hackers will now have access to your CLIENT’S email and can use that for phishing scams and virus-laden spam. I’m sure your clients want you to be a good steward of their information and privacy, so get serious about putting essential security practices in place.
