Business Education Series - Cyber Security
Few small businesses today can function without the public internet. The internet is a great venue for business and offers many benefits; yet, it also presents challenges and dangers that are often difficult for many small business to understand and manage. The number of small businesses becoming victims of cyber-crimes is growing rapidly. This victimization occurs either through scams, fraud, theft, or other malicious criminal activity.
Small business owners tend to be so busy running their businesses that they lack time and access to understand good security practices. In many cases the mistakes they make are the small things that place their business at risk: using default or simple passwords, clicking on things they shouldn't, un-secure network settings, and a lack of basic cyber security training for themselves and employees.
