STATE OF SMALL BUSINESS SECURITY –
Cyber-crime is expected to cost companies $6 Trillion worldwide by 2021.*
Among those at risk of being targeted by cyber-criminals, small and medium businesses (SMBs) are particularly vulnerable. In fact, 40% of organizations that fall victim to data breaches are small businesses.**
The state of SMB security is poor, with 86% of SMBs reporting that their ability to manage security risks is not highly effective.*
Even more astonishing is the fact that 50% of SMBs have experienced a data breach within the past 12 months, and 22% of SMBs surveyed by the Ponemon Institute in 2016 admitted to having no intrusion-detection system in place.**

While most SMBs understand the need for, and are willing to invest in, basic security solutions to minimize external security vulnerabilities, few feel the same way about investing in solutions to reduce internal security gaps. This lack of investment can mean the difference in whether you stay open durng a data breach or close your doors.
It’s known that employee and third-party negligence is responsible for most data breaches, but the root cause of many breaches remains a mystery. One-third of companies admitted they were unable to identify a root cause following a data breach.*
Meaning, the vulnerability responsible for the breach is never identified and corrected 33% of the time, so it can likely be used to exploit your customer’s network again.
