The question of the day is does your small or mid-size business need cyber security? The answer is a resounding yes. In fact, you cannot afford to keep operating without an organized approach to your cyber security system. Both small and mid-size businesses certainly are not immune to threats from computer hackers. In all actuality, a computer hacker is just as likely to go after small and mid-size organizations as compared to large corporations because they are typically a lot easier to hack into.

Computer hackers and cyber thieves are smart, they know full well that you’re not spending as much money on cyber security systems like large corporations are. Large organizations may have more to steal but they also have more to spend when it comes to protecting their digital assets and their customer’s personal and financial data. So, if a computer hacker or cyber thief cannot break into the computer system of a large corporation, they are going after you instead. So what makes your company a target? You have valuable data.

Computer hackers are well aware that even small companies have data such as medical records, credit card information, and Social Security numbers that are worth offloading for a profit on the Dark Web. You also have bank account credentials and proprietary business information to steal. Computer hackers and cyber thieves are constantly attempting to come up with new ways to steal this data. They will either use it themselves to get into bank accounts and make fraudulent purchases or sell it to other criminals who will use it to steal from people.

In addition, they want your computing power. Computer hackers and cyber thieves are also interested in utilizing your company’s computers, along with computers for other businesses, in order to conduct computer attacks against particular entities. They conduct the attacks by artificially producing enormous amounts of internet traffic that disrupts service to a company or multiple companies.

In conclusion, large corporations have entire teams that are dedicated to handling cyber security. However, most small to mid-size businesses are not as lucky. At best, a single employee who also wears other hats within the company handles cyber security. That’s why you need to work with a third-party vendor that is an expert in cyber security for small to mid-size businesses.
