July 25, 2019 / Help Net Security

A majority of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) do not have cybersecurity protection at the top of their agenda and are highly prone to risks and vulnerabilities, according to ConnectWise. The risk assessments reveal that an alarming 69% of SMBs have not identified and documented cybersecurity threats, while 66% have not identified and documented cybersecurity vulnerabilities. Beginning in fall 2018, ConnectWise’s MSP partners around the world were offered free risk assessments to assess their SMB customers’ security posture against a wide variety of malicious cybersecurity threats. While these assessments are still ongoing, results from the first 1,000 showing the top risks SMBs face have now been completed. Data from the assessments also revealed the following facts about SMBs: More than half (57%) have not informed and trained all users on cybersecurity. Almost half (48%) have not analysed cybersecurity attack targets and methods.
