It seems you can’t go a day without hearing news of some huge cyber-attack on a large company or organization. Everyone from Target to HBO has been the victim of malicious hackers looking to gain profit from some sort of unauthorized access to company data, assets, or resources. Those are the stories you hear about – what about the ones you don’t? What about the small businesses getting compromised every day and losing tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars, or losing the intellectual property that help differentiate their business? HBO may look bad when they get hacked, Equifax might have to offer free credit monitoring to the whole country, but isolated cyber incidents are likely not going to put them out of business. However, for the average small to mid-sized business, that type of an incident is unrecoverable.
