You’ve built a successful small business. It’s taken you years and untold numbers of hours to accomplish that feat. Right now, hackers from across the globe are looking for ways to steal from you. In 2013, Department of Homeland Security notified more than 3,000 companies that their computer system were breached. Unfortunately, these firms were unaware that they had been hacked.
Big businesses are more security savvy and becoming harder to hack. Unfortunately, hackers are moving on to easier targets like your small businesses. Unfortunately, most business general liability policies don’t cover losses due to a hacker attack. Sixty percent of small businesses fail within 6 months of a cyber attack according to the National Cyber Security Alliance.
Did you know that your business bank account doesn’t have the same protections as consumer accounts under the law? If your business bank account is hacked and funds are stolen, your bank may not replace those funds.
Even if you have layers of security hardware and software, employees can be the source of serious security issues. This was demonstrated during tax season this year when finance department employees from a number of large firms were tricked into revealing the IRS W2 form data on all their employees. They thought they were responding to an email requests their CEO. Unfortunately, the email requests were forgeries. The unfortunate employees have been exposed to the possibility of identity theft. Training could have all but eliminated this problem.
