Data Breach

Some SMB’s like to put their head in the sand when it comes to cybersecurity. Unfortunately, data breaches are a REAL threat that needs to be planned for.

Did you know that SMBs have a higher susceptibility of being successfully breached, in comparison to larger corporations?

While it seems like hackers would go for the bigger fish, SMB’s may not have the resources large companies do and are thus an easier target.

While your business might not have the same amount of dollars to throw at a security solution that an enterprise would, you can take small steps to mitigate exposure to threats before they gain access to your network.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • What monetary value is at stake if my business is successfully is hit with a cyber-attack?
  • Could I detrimentally affect the lives of my customers if their information gets into the wrong hands?
  • Would my business go bankrupt because of an attack?

Think about it this way, when it comes to experiencing a data breach, the odds are as high as 1 in 4. Therefore, you must understand the probability of being attacked, how your business could be affected – and even more importantly, which factors can reduce or increase the impact and cost of your data breach.

  • What is the true cost of preventing an attack versus recovering from an attack?
  • What is the value you put on protecting your network with the most up to date security offerings?

Once you have responded to the questions above, you have a clearer path to navigating a stronger security solution.

A good place to start is to see whether your credentials (email and passwords) are on the Dark Web. Give us a call at 714-970-9330 or contact us at [email protected] for a complimentary domain scan.
