Overview: Information is the lifeblood of most organizations, and SMBs are managing more of it than ever before. Personal customer information, proprietary product information and employee credentials are among the valuable items cybercriminals have set their sights on.
This information has become as valuable to criminals as cash, and they are developing more creative and effective ways to steal it. From attacks kits to phishing to social engineering scams, criminals are setting their sights on SMBs.
A secure, operational network lies at the heart of any successful business. The goal of every SMB is to keep valuable data secure in the face of growing attacks. How well you protect yourself against these attacks can mean the difference between a successful year and the failure of the company itself.
Symantec conducted its SMB Threat Awareness Poll in September 2011, asking 1,900 SMBs how familiar they are with threats, and what they are doing to protect themselves. The results show that organizations are aware of the threats, but they feel that their small size makes them less vulnerable to attack. This, in turn, means SMBs are not doing everything they could to secure their valuable information.
