Many small businesses have lulled themselves into a false sense of security when it comes to data. They think that since they are small and much less of an obvious target than bigger companies, they will be safe from the various kinds of data breaches that are prowling around out there. Unfortunately, that's not the truth--but the good news is that IT services can help you prepare for any scare.
The Truth About Security
Businesses of all shapes and sizes need to value security just as much as they value their data. With no defensive measures in place, any company would be at risk--which is why it's important to do your homework. For example, take a look at these frightening facts.
- At some point, almost all small businesses get too comfortable, thinking they're safe because they don't have any data that would be valuable to an attacker.
- Most small businesses have meager security budgets, with just enough money set aside for a minor emergency.
- Many similar companies don't even have internal security, which means that even if they're lucky enough to avoid an external attack, that document left on the printer tray could easily end up in the wrong hands--and then their data is at risk again.
