My business is to small to be hacked. I don't live in an area where businesses get hacked. These are the two most common responses we receive when talking with small business owners about cybersecurity. In most cases, probably 90%, the attacker has no clue who you are, what your business does, where your business is located or what data they can get. You don't want to be the business that pulled the short straw one day and loose everything.
There's many antivirus software vendors claiming they can protect you from a cyberattack. The days of scanning for a Trojan virus are long gone. Most, if not all big name AV products fail horrible when defending you against a modern cyberattack. Cybersecurity protection software does much more than just catch a virus. It uses next-gen technology to actively hunt out threats on you computer and eliminate them, along with many more features.
No. Many successful small business cyberattacks are caused directly by the ISP's false advertising. Most ISP's are now using the term cybersecurity as a buzz word to charge you more and deliver nothing. In fact many 3rd party companies that perform network intrusion testing has documented how easily they got past the ISP's equipment. You need a true security firewall, properly configured to protect you from outside attacks.
Many service providers will tell you the cost of doing nothing is more expensive. Which is true. A report form released by insurance companies states that most small businesses that suffer a cyberattack never reopen. Is it expensive to protect your business?
