Who on earth would target me? I'm sure that's the first thing that comes to mind with every growing business. But unfortunately this is reality. When it comes to network security, it's easy for small to medium sized businesses to skimp out and say "Nobody will target us!"
It's a fact that year over year attacks are more aggressive and more widespread. The attacks become more sophisticated and you may very well be in someone’s cross-hairs already.
A recent study showed that 1 in every 5 small businesses networks would be compromised. It's sure to rise year over year. Whether it be key-loggers disguised in emails, undetectable malware from visiting new sites, or the wonderful copycat site that copies the original for a phishing attack.
