Online security shouldn’t just concern the consumers who feed their information into websites. It’s something the businesses that own sites should be worried about, too.
Unfortunately, over half (54%) of the businesses surveyed for the 2018 State of SMB Cybersecurity report believe they’re too small to be a target for hackers. But the data paints a different picture:
- 67% of small- and medium-sized businesses were attacked in 2018;
- 82% of those attacked had antivirus software installed on their systems;
- 72% had intrusion detection systems in place.
In reality, businesses aren’t failing to secure their websites because they believe they’re too small to attract the attention of hackers. The truth is, most point to a lack of resources to explain why they forego security.
