Nearly 70 Percent of SMBs Experience Cyber Attacks

November 14, 2018 / securitymagazine

The 2018 State of Cybersecurity in Small and Medium Size Businesses study, conducted by the Ponemon Institute, sponsored by Keeper Security, revealed that small businesses increasingly face the same cybersecurity risks as larger companies, but only 28 percent rate their ability to mitigate threats, vulnerabilities and attacks as “highly effective.” The number of attacks, including phishing, advanced malware, zero-day and ransomware attacks is rising -- with 67 percent experiencing a cyber attack and 58 percent experiencing a data breach in the last 12 months. Yet nearly half of respondents (47 percent) say they have no understanding of how to protect their companies against cyber attacks.
