JSG has recently launched a new offering to our clients called JSG Protect–a cybersecurity system to protect their company and data! Each week this December 2022, we will highlight a different industry that would benefit from using JSG Protect. This week, we want to focus on small businesses!
Why are small businesses targeted?
According to StrongDM, statistics show that small businesses are increasingly becoming the main targets for cyberattacks. Often, this happens because they are less likely to have strong cybersecurity if any! Many small businesses are under the false impression that cybercriminals would look over them because of their size, but 46% of all cyber breaches impact businesses with fewer than 1,000 employees. Hackers are aware that small businesses still have data and money to steal, and they are often easier to target because they are not expecting attacks. According to Accenture, only 14% of small businesses are properly preparing themselves against cyber-attacks.
If you are a small business owner, it is crucial that you protect your business against these attacks. It could be the difference between your company thriving and being shut down overnight!
How can you protect your small business?
It is pretty safe to say that if you are not prepared, you will suffer from a cybersecurity attack. It is essential to educate your staff about best practices for keeping your company’s data safe. Password policies, data backups, and staff training are all great steps to keeping your company safe, but the key to being worry-free about your cybersecurity is to partner with professionals like those at JSG Protect. At JSG Protect, we have professionals that analyze your systems to ensure the best use and provide 24/7 active monitoring.
