Small Businesses have the most to lose in the cybersecurity game, and if that sounds like fabricated truth, take a look at some of the following stats from the National Cyber Security Alliance and the 2017 Verizon Data Breach Investigation Report:
- 70% of attacks are aimed at small businesses.
- 61% of security breaches hit smaller businesses last year.
- Cyber attacks cost small businesses between $84,000 and $148,000.
- 60% of small businesses go out of business within 6 months of a cyberattack.
Yet, with all of the public knowledge regarding the threat that small businesses face, business owners still are not taking preventative measures to protect their organizations. In fact, a study by Paychex found that 68% of small business owners are not concerned about getting hacked, and 90% said they were at least somewhat confident they could recover in the event of a successful attack. To make matters worse, 90% of small businesses don’t use any data protection at all for company and customer information.
The problem is this: small business owners are constantly focusing on their trade to keep business operations running, leaving them little time to concern themselves with matters like IT security. In reality, strengthening their IT defense might be the one thing that keeps their company afloat.
That’s where Tier1 Techs comes in.
