The world wide web has brought numerous benefits to the world, including technological advancements and unimaginable global connections. Unfortunately, it has also led to the rise of cybercrimes that can have detrimental effects. Recent Juniper research revealed that in 2019, such cybercrimes resulted in losses of approximately $2 trillion.
While small business owners might think that larger corporations are more at risk for website hacks, that notion is not true. Small businesses account for more than half (58%) of cyberattacks. Indeed, small businesses are ideal targets for cyber-attacks because they often lack the mechanisms to protect themselves from cybercrimes. Below are some quick stats that emphasize the importance of cybersecurity for small businesses.
