Security: Not a Luxury, but a Necessity
The digital landscape is continually evolving, bringing with it an array of opportunities as well as challenges. Security, undoubtedly, stands at the forefront of these challenges. Given the increase in both the volume and sophistication of cyberattacks, especially amidst the shift to remote work, businesses, particularly SMBs, are finding themselves in precarious positions. Budget constraints and a lack of specialized security skills further compound the problem. It's a stark reality that needs addressing, as the stats reveal:
- 300% Increase in Ransomware Attacks: SMBs constitute a significant chunk of the victims, proving that no one is too small to be targeted.
- 23% Have Experienced a Security Breach: About one in four small and medium-sized businesses reported a security breach just last year.
- $108,000 Average Cost to Businesses: This is the average price tag attached to a data breach. As an SMB, can you afford such a blow?
