You, the CEO of a small business, are under attack. Right now, extremely dangerous and well-funded cybercrime rings in China, Russia and the Ukraine as well as homegrown hackers are using sophisticated software systems to hack into thousands of small businesses like yours. This is in order to steal credit cards, client information, and swindle money directly out of your bank account. Some are even being funded by their own government to attack American businesses.
Don’t think you’re in danger because you’re “small” and not a big target like a Target, J.P. Morgan or Home Depot? THINK AGAIN! 82,000 NEW malware threats are being released every single day and HALF of the cyber-attacks occurring are aimed at small businesses; you just don’t hear about it because it’s kept quiet for fear of attracting bad PR, lawsuits, data-breach fines and out of sheer embarrassment. Cyber criminals prey on your innocence and have become HIGHLY sophisticated in how they gain access.

What are some security issues that every organization faces everyday?

There are simple strategies, methods and products that could save you from getting your bank account wiped out, getting your client's personal information stolen, losing critical data and having your systems down for extended periods of time, not to mention the bad PR, civil and criminal lawsuits and fines that can result from a data breach.
