A data security breach can cripple a small business.

Unfortunately, there is still a pervasive sentiment among some business owners that they don’t have enough data to warrant a security solution or that their data is unimportant to criminals.

Nearly 60% of small businesses close their doors within six months of a data breach, and that’s after they’ve spent those long months losing money, suffering through lengthy litigation, enduring brand and reputation dismemberment, and dealing with angry customers.

In 2017, Verizon’s Data Breach Investigations Report found that more than 75% of the data breach victims they studied were small businesses. Hackers see small businesses as easy targets because of a lack of processes, security breach technology safeguards, and IT teams.
