Over 77% of all cybercrimes target small and midsize enterprises (SMEs) and yet, research shows 42% of small and midsize businesses don’t see cybercrime as a risk. Securing your growing enterprise against cyber threats is critical, but it takes time and resources away from growth activities. The problem only gets worse when traditional security solutions fail to stop advanced attacks.
SMEs face unique challenges in many areas, especially in Cybersecurity. Businesses need a cybersecurity strategy to protect your own business, your customers, and your data from growing cybersecurity threats. From understanding your risk to finding appropriate resources for mitigating that risk, many small business owners struggle to keep their small enterprise cyber-safe. Staying cyber-safe is a must for any business irrespective of the size of your business. The need to work within a budget is a challenge, which needs expert advice to negotiate shark-infested cyber waters.
