Even though small businesses may feel that they are too insignificant to be noticed by hackers, the opposite is actually true. Hackers target small businesses more often than you might think because they know that these businesses often have weaker security systems in place. In fact, 43% of cyber attacks target small businesses. Cyberattacks can happen to any business at any time, and they can be devastating. According to the National Cyber Security Alliance, 60% of small companies go out of business within six months of a cyberattack. The average cost of a data breach for a small business is around £75,000.
