We have all heard the numerous stories in the past couple of months about the "big" guys that have been hacked. But did you know that 60% of small businesses close their doors within six months of a data breach? Why you ask? The 5 major reasons are that a small businesses can provide a pivot point for the hackers to get to the bigger companies, in general they are not equipped to detect a threat and respond proactively, they have little protection and security in place to protect them on a daily basis, they believe that the hackers only go after the big companies and don't take cyber threats seriously, and even if they do have some security measures in place, they just aren't prepared for the complexity of today's attacks. Don't let the business you built be stolen by these criminals! Talk to your agent about Cyber Liability coverage before it's too late.
