As the owner of a small business, why should you worry about information security? We’ve all seen the news reports of large companies and the government getting hacked, but as a small business, do you feel that you ‘fly under the radar’? Why would a hacker bother with your small business with so many larger targets?
The fact is that most security breaches come from internal sources – your own employees – and over half of these are inadvertent. As large businesses have been getting better at making themselves secure, so small companies are becoming more attractive targets for hackers.
Data theft or loss is one of the most common scenarios, however other threats may include viruses or other malicious code infecting your systems, or tampering with your Web Site or your social media presence.
So what can a small business do? There is a lot you can do to become more secure, and most security measures can be implemented for free or at a very low cost. Especially when you consider the cost of securing your information vs. the cost of a security breach.
Basic security measures are common sense, and the problem is finding the time. If you have security concerns, but don’t have the time to address them, call Relate Fast! We will provide a security assessment and action plan that meets your needs at a very reasonable cost.
