66% of cyberattacks are aimed at small business

November 2018

Did you know that an average cyberattack will cost a small business like yours between $84,000 and $148,000? Or that 60% of small business have to close their doors within six months of a cyberattack?[1] The hard truth is that small businesses are not immune to cybercrime. Although data breaches typically only make the headlines when big companies get hit, the sobering reality is that 43% of cyberattacks specifically target small businesses,[2] with ransomware attacks increasing 15X in the last two years.[3] It takes just one unsuspecting employee to click on a link embedded in an email to bring your business to a screeching halt—and possibly cost you thousands of dollars to get your data back.
