This is a Serious Risk
Thieves target small businesses because they lack the security budgets of big companies. In fact, 63 percent of data breaches are at companies with fewer than 100 employees. A data breach to a small to midsize company on average costs $38,000.
It's not a matter of if, but when
Approximately 50 percent of small companies were breached in the last 12 months. If you cannot answer yes to all of these questions, then you are not prepared.
- Do you know there are laws in 48 states and federal law that require companies to maintain data breach protection?
- Have you adopted a Written Information Security Program (WISP) as required by law?
- Do you have a written plan in place when your data breach technology defenses are defeated?
- Are you legally compliant and adequately protected for data breaches?
- Are you actively training employees about data breach security?
Don't be unprepared, because you have a lot to lose.
