Almost 2/3 of all cyber attacks are now directed at small business

Top 5 reasons SMB businesses should protect their business from cyber crime

Protection of sensitive data

SMB businesses often handle sensitive information such as customer data, financial records, and proprietary business information that can be valuable to cybercriminals. Protecting this information is critical to maintaining the trust of customers and preventing financial loss.

Compliance with regulations

Many SMB businesses are subject to industry regulations that require them to implement certain security measures to protect sensitive data. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in hefty fines and legal penalties.

Prevention of business disruption

Cybercrime can cause significant disruptions to SMB businesses, impacting operations, damaging reputation and causing financial losses. Implementing cyber security measures can help prevent or minimize the impact of these disruptions.

Avoiding ransom payments

Ransomware attacks have become increasingly common, with cybercriminals using malware to encrypt a company’s data and then demanding payment in exchange for the decryption key. Implementing cyber security measures can help prevent these types of attacks and avoid the need to pay ransoms.

Reputation protection

SMB businesses depend on their reputation for success. Cybercrime can damage the reputation of a small business, causing customers to lose trust and leading to financial losses. Implementing cyber security measures can help protect a small business’s reputation and maintain customer trust.
