Cyber Security 5 Things You should know to Protect Your Business, will be presented by Robin Saunders, Program Director of the MS in Communications & Information Management programs at Bay Path University.
Cybercrime costs the economy more than $1 trillion per year, and crooks are increasingly setting their sights on small businesses. Cyber attacks are growing in importance every day – from influencing major elections to crippling businesses overnight. - Cybersecurity is smart business!
According to a June 2017 article on Business News Daily, small businesses are just as at risk for cyberattacks as larger companies. According to a report by Keeper Security and the Ponemon Institute, 61% of small and Medium sized businesses have experienced a cyber attack and have been breached in the past 12 months.
Small Businesses have a lot to lose. Small businesses store their own critical data as well as important customer records (including possibly credit card, social security, and/or other numbers), vendor information, customer lists, passwords, and much, much more.
Let’s not become a statistic. A little work now is smart business.
