You have cybersecurity in place, right?

And that covers everything, right?

So, you don’t need anything extra like, say, data protection, right?

WRONG. You would think that whatever cybersecurity technology you have would be good enough. The fact is cybercriminals have become more sophisticated and are targeting small and mid-size businesses.

Why Your Size Matters

Hackers like that most SMBs don’t have robust data protection. That means that all your structured and unstructured data is up for grabs, and that’s precisely what they do. They come in, grab everything they can, bundle the haul with other hauls and sell it to the highest bidder.

Structured Data Unstructured Data
Names, dates, addresses, credit card numbers, stock information Invoices, emails, surveillance data, IoT sensor data, analytics

For others, once they have access, they corrupt your data, either as a form of corporate espionage or as a brag. And let’s not forget compliance. No matter the size of your business, you must be able to prove that you are in compliance with a variety of regulations.
