Small and medium-sized businesses are at risk

43% of all cyberattacks are targeted at small and medium-sized businesses. Why are these businesses so vulnerable?

There are several reasons. Hackers target them primarily because they are vulnerable and exploit their cybersecurity ignorance. Such companies often do not have the resources – both financial and human – to pay enough attention to cybersecurity.

Many business owners, especially in Slovakia and the Czech Republic, do not even perceive the threats of cyberattacks. They do not see it as a problem and therefore carelessly neglect cybersecurity. Unfortunately, if a risk does occur, it is usually too late.

Cyberattacks on small and medium-sized businesses often have a fatal impact on their operations and in many cases such companies end up. The result is financial losses, laid-off employees, and in the worst cases even legal problems. However, this can be prevented when you invest time and energy into cybersecurity awareness.

Viruses, stolen passwords, and leaks of sensitive data

Neglecting cybersecurity opens the door to viruses, trojans, stolen passwords, and leaks of sensitive data. In many cases, there is nothing that can be done about it. For example, with ransomware, hackers will encrypt all of your files on your storage device and demand a ransom that often does not even help. This is how many companies have lost all of their data, especially if they did not back it up.

Stolen passwords and leaks of customer data are especially sensitive. These increase customer outrage, damage the company's reputation, and can even lead to legal consequences.

The truth is that the best defense is prevention. And the first step can be the online webinar . Cybersecurity without stressSo don't hesitate, register for FREE and protect your business.
