CYBER SECRUITY FOR SMALL BUSINESSES

Posted By Program Admin, Tuesday, October 31, 2017
Updated: Wednesday, October 18, 2017

From the 2017 State of Cybersecurity Among Small Businesses in North America study conducted by the Better Business Bureau.

 

This study is very informative and provides the demographics of the respondents as well as thoughtful analysis of the data.

 

Approximately 43% of small businesses ARE being targeted to get into larger corporations. 

 

HOW DO I KNOW IF MY COMPANY SUFFICIENTLY PROTECTED?   

All businesses owners should look at this study.  Approximately 53% of small businesses attacked are not profitable within 30 days of the attack. 

 

WHERE TO I START?

  • Read the BBB study On page 21 of the study there are 5 steps to determine the right level of investment in cybersecurity. 
  • View the 5 Myths About Cybersecurty pod cast.  Learn about what hackers hope you believe is true.
  • Train yourself and your employees, anyone that has access to your company network.  Do you allow personal mobile devices access to your company's network?
  • The Small Business Development Center has free webinars and information regarding this very important topic.
  • Wyoming has a new association  Made Safe in Wyoming. The Wyoming Business Council is not endorsing this association, however, it is a resource for information and a place to start to protect your company and your customers.  Their mission is to build a firewall around Wyoming - one business or organization at a time.  The members of this association have skills in cybersecurity and provide services to companies seeking to improve their cyber security systems.

 

CYBERSECURITY SELLS PRODUCTS!

Did you know that about 80% of customers will cancel an order because they don't feel their information is safe?  If your company's information is secure, your customers will have more confidence their information is secure.
