Criminals take the path of least resistance.
If your car door is locked, they tend to go to the car that was left open.
If your house looks dark and empty, it is the one they will probably break into.
Same is true for your business. For years cyber crooks went after large business. After all, that is where all the cyber money is. But over time corporate America has tightened its Internet security to the point that it is no longer easy pickings.
So now they are bypassing the corporate firewalls and coming after small businesses.
An article from USA Today on cyber criminals coming after small business has gotten a lot of attention. (Hopefully not from dumb crooks who have not figured this out yet).
There is lots of information out there that can help make your business less appealing to cyber crooks out trolling for an easy mark. For example, NFIB has a long list of articles at their site on how to improve your IT security, Visa offers tips for small merchants on data security, and the SBA offers some tips of their own.
