As a small business owner in an industry that has massive, popular competitors, it’s easy to assume that hackers will overlook your company. But cyber attacks against small businesses are rapidly becoming more common at an alarming rate.
Since last year, 43 percent of cyber-attacks across the world were against small business with less than 250 employees, according to Symantec, a cyber-security firm. Since 2013, small businesses have lost more than $740 million to cyber hackers, according to an article by Fox Business.
Cyber criminals hack small businesses for a number of reasons. According to Fox Business, their malicious motives could include reasons like “[robbing] bank accounts via wire transfers; steal customers’ personal identity information; file for fraudulent tax refunds; commit health insurance or Medicare fraud; or even steal intellectual property. The criminals can also hijack a small business’s website to cyberhack other small businesses.”
