Here's a fun fact: Hackers love SMBs.
Plenty of business owners believe their organizations are too small to be targeted by cybercriminals, especially with so many large companies housing troves of customer data and financial information. However, nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, 43 percent of all cyberattacks target small businesses.
Headline news can be somewhat misleading in this regard. While massive cyberattacks usually make the evening news, SMBs are actually more likely to be targeted by hackers because they lack many of the advanced digital security protocols employed by corporate giants.
Thankfully, cyber coverage insurance can protect small businesses in the event of a data breach or hacker attack. Below are a few of the most common attacks to strike SMBs and what you can do to mitigate their deleterious effects.
One of the best things you can do to defend your business against hackers is to educate your employees about online risks. Remember to provide cybersecurity guidelines for all new workers and host regular training sessions to keep employees abreast of the latest threats.
You should also consider hiring an external IT staff dedicated to detecting unusual behavior on your network. Some agencies even employ machine learning algorithms to identify and stymie cyberattacks before they can damage your operations.
Of course, no defense system is entirely impregnable which is why it's vital to invest in cyber coverage insurance.
