A recent article published in a southern city business journal focused attention on the status of cyber threats and small business. The article by Mike W. Thomas in the San Antonio Business Journal states:
Small businesses are increasingly worried about cyber threats today but are still doing little to address those concerns, according to a new survey. The survey of small businesses with fewer than 100 employees shows a disconnect between awareness of the cyber threat and actions that would address the problem.
A majority of small businesses owners, 63 percent, reported that they are worried about undetected malware, while 38 percent are worried about phishing attacks and 41 percent are concerned about breaches caused by human error. Nevertheless, 31 percent of small businesses still reported that they are not doing anything to protect against these threats.
What are you doing to protect your business?
