No business or organization that uses computers is immune from the threat of data breaches, unauthorized access, and malicious activities. In fact, more than 70% of all cybersecurity incidents were the result of internal security issues that no firewall, anti-virus, or malware device could have prevented.
These attacks do not just take place against large, well-known corporations. While those are the big stories that make the evening news, 60% of all cybersecurity incidents happen to small companies.
