When it comes to network security, it is easy for small to medium sized businesses to say “not me”, “they are only after the big guys.” Yet that's completely not true any longer. They're after easier targets, us small and medium sized businesses. The reality is that attacks on all networks have been increasing year after year as hackers have become more sophisticated, and small businesses are being affected every day by relaxed or non-existent security policies.
A recent study showed that 3 in every 10 small businesses networks would be compromised, sometimes without employees even being aware until it was too late, causing client data to be compromised, data to be lost, revenue to be lost, and identities to be stolen. With the ever-increasing technological advances, it is likely that since then, these numbers have climbed, posing a significant risk for a potential breach, lost or stolen data, or some type of malicious threat.
No matter the size of your business, network security is a definite requirement for every business in the digital age. If you are worried or unsure of where to start with an internal security audit, our team can help get you on track.
