The owners of many small and medium businesses believe they are too small to attract the attention of hackers. However, hackers know that SMBs hold a great deal of personally identifiable information and that they are most likely to be easy to breach. Attacks against these smaller organizations are on the rise and the trend is not expected to shift any time soon.
In addition to attracting hackers, SMBs are under pressure from regulatory agencies. Smaller organizations are subject to the same rules as large enterprises, only smaller businesses have a lot more at stake.Understanding the requirements and ensuring they are met is confusing and time-consuming, and penalties for non-compliance start at $5000 per instance. An SMB that doesn't handle its regulatory burden with diligence faces an uncertain future.
