But why do small businesses need this?

As a business owner, part of your responsibility is understanding the threats that put your business at risk. You might think that having a small business means you’re not an attractive target to cybercriminals, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. 85% of data breaches occur at the small business level because of the following reasons:

  • They’re less aware of how they’re exposed to threats
  • They aren’t as likely to have capable risk management systems in place

You’ve likely heard of the basics – installing anti-virus software, being wary of phishing emails, and using strong passwords. But nowadays, that’s simply not enough to keep small businesses safe. You need a more advanced approach to cybersecurity, like a unified threat management solution.
