“We are in the middle of a cyber-war” as stated by Congressman Rogers, at last week’s Cyber Risk Summit in DC. Many small businesses believe that they are ‘too small’ for hackers to care about, that is incorrect. Hackers do not discriminate based on size of who they attack, the easier the target the better. Many would be surprised to hear that hacking is a full time job for individuals and/or organizations. They work their 10 – 12 hour days trying to get into systems and steal financial information, intellectual property, trade secrets, etc. They will identify an industry, target a weak link, and patiently work until they are successful at getting what they want. Nothing is 100%, however small businesses can put layers of protection in place that will help mitigate their exposure.
