Should your business consider Cyber Insurance? Is your confidential information at risk?
Although it’s easy to have the “it couldn’t happen to me” attitude toward security breaches and data theft threats, in reality your company can be at a higher risk then you may realize. Retailors across the country are paying closer attention to how they store and insure their data. Are you?
To go with this, its not just the large companies that make national headlines for having millions of customers’ information stolen, such as Target back in December, that are the victims. Experts say medium and small sized businesses are just as likely to become a victim of security fraud as large companies, if not more.
According to Symantec’s 2013 Internet Security Threat Report; last year, 31 percent of all attacks were aimed at companies with less than 250 employees.
