Cyber-attacks are quickly becoming one of the nation’s biggest and most sinister economic threats. No business is immune. Small and medium businesses are in the cybercrime cross-hairs largely because many lack the time, budget and expertise to coordinate an effective security solution and making them targets to cybercriminals. Understanding what is at risk and how a breach would affect your company are the first steps to protecting your business.
