Cyber thieves and hackers often target small to medium sized businesses, specifically because they are easier targets and lack the appropriate security controls and expertise found in some of the larger organizations. Cyber criminals target much more than just credit card data; they target Personally Identifiable information (PII), client information, records, etc. This information is used to commit cybercrimes such as identity theft, phishing scams, denial-of-service attacks, ransomware attacks, extortion, reputational impacts, and much more.
“Hackers often prefer targeting small-to-medium sized businesses (“SMBs”) over large corporate enterprises, specifically because SMBs often have inferior IT security or the IT security is not properly configured and/or monitored properly. SMBs are targeted using a wide casting digital nets, such as phishing scams, malware and exploits.” – Matthew Ferrante, Founder of AuroraSecurity
