Stay Safe from Cybersecurity Threats

cybersecurity tips

Cyber attacks are a growing threat for small businesses and the U.S. economy. According to the FBI’s Internet Crime Report, the cost of cybercrimes reached $2.7 billion in 2020 alone. Small businesses are attractive targets because they have information that cybercriminals want, and they typically lack the security infrastructure of larger businesses.

Start by learning about common cyber threats, understanding where your business is vulnerable, and taking steps to improve your cybersecurity.
