“Small businesses should be on the lookout for ransomware attacks, in particular. Ransomware is a type of malware that locks users out of their devices or encrypts their files until a ransom is paid. This type of attack can be devastating to small businesses who may not have the same data backup and security protocols in place as larger businesses.
Other types of cyber-attacks that small businesses should be on the lookout for include phishing scams, Trojan horses, and botnets. Phishing scams are emails or text messages that appear to be from legitimate sources but are actually designed to steal information or install malware on your device. Trojan horses are malicious programs that disguise themselves as legitimate software, and botnets are networks of infected devices used without the owners knowledge.
