You’ve probably heard of malware or ransomware attacks targeting banks, hospitals, and big-box retailers. Although these stories tend to make national headlines, about 70% of cyberattacks are actually against small businesses. A single data breach could set you back tens of thousands of dollars, which is why small business network security is an essential investment for companies of all sizes.
At Waterdog Computer Works, we stay up to date on the latest cyberthreats, and we can give you the technology and IT support needed to safeguard your sensitive data. We have more than two decades of experience in IT and computer consulting. Call us today at 484-544-0992 for a free network security assessment.
The True Cost of a Data Breach to Small Businesses
No business can be successful without careful budgeting, but it’s not always easy to discern an essential investment from an unnecessary expense. Many small-business owners are under the impression that cybersecurity is a luxury they can put off until they reach a certain profit threshold, but one malware attack could be all it takes to cause your company to fail.
According to a report published by Corporate Information Technologies, small businesses can expect to pay about $14,000 per data breach. Some studies place that figure closer to $500,000. In either case, the cost of a cyberattack is often too high for a small company to afford.
