Is Cybersecurity Really That Important?
Let’s nip this in the bud right now: yes, cybersecurity is very important for your small business. While you might not be targeted by advanced technology, there are lots of hackers out there that know small businesses don’t have the resources for robust cybersecurity measures, so they target them in hopes of a quick win.
“While growing your business should be a priority, forgetting about cybersecurity can have grave consequences. Startups do not need to invest in the most advanced software, as they are not targeted with the most advanced malware, but they should employ at least a few low-maintenance practices that will keep them protected from the most common types of attacks,” said Oliver Noble, a cybersecurity expert at NordLocker, in the press release.
Unfortunately, these quick wins for hackers can be devastating to small businesses, costing them millions of dollars and halting business operations. Significant cyber attacks have hit businesses, colleges, and even entire cities, so protecting yourself against them is clearly important if you want to stay in business.
