A marketing firm asked 1,250 small business owners (with fewer than 500 employees) about their cybersecurity practice, and the results are pretty staggering. They largely show that most aren’t doing much to prepare for potential attacks, and for those that have done some work, it often falls far short.
Nearly half of the business owners surveyed don’t have any defensive measures in place, and a third have no protection whatsoever against cyberattacks. And less than a third have implemented regular data backups or made use of secured networks, two of the reasons why ransomware continues to be effective. You can read my analysis in Avast’s blog here.
