The Importance of Cybersecurity for Small Businesses

Cyberattacks are more common than you think, and small businesses have a high likelihood of being the target. Hackers often target small businesses in particular because they are more commonly unequipped with the systems and processes required to defend against a cyberattack. For this reason, it is especially valuable to understand the security threats small businesses can face and how they can be effectively prevented.

Cybersecurity Threats Small Businesses Face

Cyberattacks can present themselves to small businesses in a variety of ways. Ransomware, scam calls and phishing are just a few ways hackers may try to access your business’ data and breach your systems. Read through our cybersecurity blogs to learn more about the different threats your small business may be susceptible to.

How to Prevent Cyberattacks on Your Business

Preventive action is the best way to avoid a potential cyberattack. Ensuring that your business is taking the proper steps to protect data and systems from hackers now will help to give you peace of mind in the future. Cybersecurity resources from the Michigan Small Business Development Center (Michigan SBDC) can educate you on what needs to be done to prevent attacks and how to move forward.
