Did you know that 44% of small businesses reported being a victim of a Cyber Attack?

Written by Timothy Shannon on . Posted in Uncategorized

Cyber attacks on small business have an average cost of $9,000.00 per attack according to a National Small Business Association survey and www.staysafeonline.org.

NSBA also estimates that nearly 59% of small to medium size companies don’t have a plan in place to respond and report data breaches, and everyone is a potential target.

Studies show Cyber Criminals target vulnerable computer systems and networks, regardless of whether it’s a Fortune 500 company, a small business, or an individual mobile device. Criminals are looking for any valuable information-employee and customer information, bank account numbers, financial information, or access to a larger network.

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month. This annual campaign to Stop|Think|Connect is sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security.

Basic tips to help prevent your business from falling victim to a Cyber Attack include:

* Run scheduled back-ups of critical data

* Use and regularly update antivirus software

* Secure internet connections with firewalls

* Use encryption, and secured Wi-Fi networks

* Establish and enforce security practices, including strong, frequently changed passwords

* Ensure business continuity plans include cyber incidents
