Online Security for Small to Medium Sized Businesses
Switch to another Security Center:
A September 2011 Symantec Poll of small to medium sized businesses revealed that these organizations are aware of online threats, but feel that their small size makes them less vulnerable to attack. However, small businesses may be greatly underestimating their risk. Symantec.cloud reported that 40 % of targeted cyber-attacks have been directed at small businesses, compared to 28% of attacks directed toward large enterprises.
If you are a small business owner, there are steps you can take to reduce your vulnerability to cyber-attacks.
- Complete a security assessment. It's important to have a clear picture of your risks and be aware of any security gaps, so you can take steps to protect your information.
- Educate yourself and your employees. Create internet security guidelines for your company. Provide your employees with training that focuses on security basics such regularly changing passwords, and the importance of protecting mobile devices.
- Take action. Develop a security plan based on your security assessment. Ensure that your business has critical policies in place (such as password complexity requirements and mobile device protection policies). Consider strengthening the security of your email and Web assets.
