SMBs Cybersecurity Risk, Their Opportunity

Many SMBs are realizing they are exposed to similar threats as their enterprise peers. Often times, those realizations come after an attack. This year, we learned from the Cisco 2018 Security Capabilities Benchmark Study: More than half (54 percent) of all cyber-attacks result in financial damages of more than US$500,000 including, but not limited to, lost revenue, customers, opportunities, and out-of-pocket costs. That amount is enough to put an unprepared small/midmarket business out of operation—permanently— a small businesses nightmare come true.
