Small Businesses Most Vulnerable to Cyber Attacks
According to a recent survey, 81 per cent of small business owners think that cyber security is a concern for their small businesses, while 94 per cent either frequently or occasionally think about cyber security issues.
Surprisingly, only 42 per cent of respondents had invested in cyber security protection in the past year, despite the fact that 31 per cent of these businesses had experienced either a successful or attempted cyber attack.
It’s possible that small business owners might simply be spreading themselves too thin. About 83 per cent of small business owners said that they handle cyber security themselves. But given the threat, it was surprising to discover that 95 per cent of small business owners don’t have cyber insurance.
