Here’s a discussion of what small businesses are doing in seeking to overcome cybersecurity risks and function safely on the Internet. Byron V. Acohido on The Last Watchdog provides information that is well worth spending time with in the interest of small business web security.
“A recent survey of more than 1,000 senior execs and IT professionals, called the AppRiver Cyberthreat Index for Business Survey, showed a high level of awareness among SMB (small business) officials that a cyberattack represents a potentially devastating operational risk,” Achohido contributes.
“What’s distinctive about this index is that AppRiver plans to refresh it on a quarterly basis, going forward, thus sharing an instructive barometer showing how SMBs are faring against cyber exposures that will only continue to steadily evolve and intensify.”
If you’re a small business this looks like it’s well worth following up on. The hazards of not keeping attentive to hacking security risks are real.
