Ransomware, Phishing And Vishing: How To Protect Your SMB
I know. I know. You’re an extremely busy business owner with an enormous temptation to discard this, shrug it off, worry about it “later” or just dismiss it altogether because you’re under the notion that “I’m too small of a business” or “I don’t have information the hackers want”. Let me make you a guarantee …
At Some Point, You WILL Have To Deal With A Cybersecurity Event
Over the last two years, Ransomware attacks have increased over 97% and there is no sign they’ll be slowing down anytime soon. This means that your business is just as vulnerable as the next and it’s simply a matter of “when” will you have to deal with the cybersecurity event – not “if” you’re going to have one.
You won’t get much sympathy when your business is the victim of a cyber crime attack where client or confidential data is compromised. You will be instantly labeled as stupid or irresponsible. You will be investigated and questioned about what you did to prevent this from happening – and if the answer is not adequate, you can be found liable, facing serious fines and lawsuits. Claiming ignorance is not an acceptable defense, and this giant, expensive and reputation-destroying nightmare will land squarely on YOU.
Hopefully you’ll be brilliantly prepared for it and experience only a minor inconvenience at most. But if you wait and do NOTHING, I can practically guarantee this will be a far more costly, disruptive and devastating attack that will happen to your business.
