Here’s a sobering statistic: According to the Wall Street Journal, more than 34,000 computer security incidents occur every day – and 62 percent of those incidents involve breaches of small and medium sized businesses.
The good news is? You can take some relatively simple and inexpensive steps to protect yourself from cybercrime. Those include:
- Safeguarding your business with modern technology: with a modest investment in time and money, you can avoid a significant portion of cyber risk.
- Developing a response and recovery plan: cyber insurance policies not only cover costs, but also can provide response and recovery solutions when breaches do occur.
- Building a culture of security: implementing simple controls and security best practices could help you avoid cybersecurity breaches.
