Image of tablet with text saying "cyber security"Cyberattacks are increasingly threatening to companies of all sizes, but small and medium businesses are particularly vulnerable. Their lack of top-of-the-line security infrastructure puts their sensitive data at risk. Combining this with limited IT teams makes cyberattacks all the more devastating.

Why Cybersecurity is Essential

There are many reasons why you should prioritize cybersecurity for your small business.

1. Protect Your Data: Sensitive information, employee data, and intellectual property all need to be protected. Losing this information, or worse, having it stolen, can seriously affect the company and its clients.

2. Maintain Customer Trust: Customers entrust businesses with their private information, and cyberattacks risk breaching that trust. For instance, if a company is the victim of a cyberattack and customer information is compromised, the company may lose clients and suffer reputational damage.

3. Avoid Financial Losses: Between revenue losses from customer disengagement, data recovery, and digital infrastructure restoration, cyberattacks can come with quite the price tag.
