Small business owners face unique challenges in many areas of their profession. Cybersecurity is no exception. From understanding their risk to finding appropriate resources for mitigating that risk, many small business owners struggle to keep their small enterprise cyber-safe.
Their struggle to stay cyber-safe is attributable to the need for small business owners to work within a budget. Budget restraints often mean that they are responsible for making decisions in areas for which they may lack expertise. Being the best plumber, consultant, or dentist in the world does not necessarily include the knowledge needed to negotiate shark-infested cyber waters.
This guide provides strategies and suggestions for keeping small businesses safe from the ever-growing catalog of cyber threats. It includes ideas for calculating risk, understanding threats, plugging vulnerabilities, and implementing mitigation steps. A list of useful resources is also included.
