If you’re the owner of a small to medium-sized enterprise, then you probably have a website. Most businesses couldn’t function, let alone succeed, without an online presence. Maybe you even act as your own webmaster, and you do everything you can to ensure that your website is content rich and filled with vital information for your customers.
Unfortunately, this just isn’t true. Studies have shown that small businesses are far more likely to be attacked than large businesses. This is true for several reasons. For instance, hackers tend to believe that small companies are less likely to have robust security measures in place. Additionally, they think that smaller businesses won’t have the resources to detect a breach until well after the damage has been done. In addition, small companies are simply more numerous than large ones.
Despite this, small business owners tend to overwhelmingly believe that they are not vulnerable to a cyber attack. At the same time, the Small Business Administration estimates that one-quarter of businesses that are shut down by this type of disaster never reopen. You owe it to yourself to improve your website’s security.
