It is week 4 of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, which means that the focus is on small and medium-size businesses and entrepreneurs.¬† Barracuda specializes in solutions for the midmarket, so let's take a minute to talk about what businesses can do to protect their organization, customers, and employees.
First let's consider why small and medium-size businesses and entrepreneurs are at such risk.¬† Midsized organizations are exposed to the same types of threats as large enterprises, but they often don't have the same resources as the big guys.¬† They often¬†don't have large IT staffs or budgets, and they can't deploy the kind of security that can be deployed in an enterprise. ¬†Klaus does a good job explaining in this video:
These organizations and entrepreneurs often have customer data, financial data, intellectual property, and other sensitive or confidential information, in one small network.¬† A security breach could cost millions, and cause the business to fail.
