According to a Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, 43% of cyberattacks target small businesses instead of large corporations. And as these small businesses navigate the remote work landscape, they are exposing themselves to new security risks. Without the tools to provide them with a snapshot of their exposures, there may be threats already infiltrating their network and threatening their business.
Considering the fact that 60% of small businesses never recover from a cyberattack, it is never too late to start investing more in your IT infrastructure. There are a handful of steps that all organizations should take, and those steps are much more attainable with a trusted IT partner. Virtual private networks (VPNs), a strong password strategy, multi-factor authentication, and updated software are the foundation for a secure network. Above all of those are educated employees who know how to spot an attempted cyber scam.
No business, no matter how big or small, is immune to cyber threats. Cybersecurity should be prioritized above anything in your organization. Reach out to Premier IT at 763.453.6800 to see how we can help make it easier for you.
