Cybersecurity is one of the biggest concerns for businesses today. Small and medium size companies try to follow their larger counterparts by adopting new skills to manage security but usually fall short because of several reasons. It can be due to the lack of infrastructure they currently have, the tools they deploy or the process they adopt to drive these services.
Check out these three major drawbacks that SMB’s face when trying to resolve IT issues on their own:
(1) Lack of Skills: Finding an expert who is proficient with the skills is always an on-going challenge in the business world – specifically when it comes to IT security. You may be amazed to know that close to 45% people are unaware of threats to their Cybersecurity. One reason could be lack of training, certification, or hands-on experience. Nevertheless, lack of skills has become one of the biggest obstacles to defend the business from unstoppable threats.
Many of us are still trying to recover from the recent Ransomware ‘WannaCry’ attack that affected almost 150 countries and 4,00,000 machines across the globe. If you were one of the victims and are still contemplating a security and backup solution, you are stretching your luck too much.
According to computer security experts, the first thing you need to identify is - What are the key solutions that you need to implement for making your cyber security strong?
Ransomware is the biggest money maker for cybercriminals in current day and age. According to the latest report by European authorities, Ransomware Attacks has impacted over 10,000 organisations and 200,000 individuals in over 150 countries. These cyber-attacks are real threats to any business including small & medium size companies (SMBs).
Many SMB enterprises think that they are too small for hackers to target. According to an Internet Security Threat Report by Symantec, almost 60% of all cyber-attacks target SMBs, and approximately 75% of all spear-phishing scams were directed at small companies. As they are totally unprepared towards these threats, the damages can be monumental and recovery path tough.
