Apparently, the National Cyber Security Alliance, together with Symantec, surveyed 1,500 small businesses and found that only 28% had a formal internet security policy. Only 28%?!
Give the amount of applications we rely on that transmit data over the internet, that statistic is disturbing. Cloud computing is increasingly becoming a more cost effective way to do business, so it behooves small businesses to ramp up their cyber security. Spending the money now to take the proper precautions can prevent a more costly security breach down the line.
What is your company doing to protect its data? How often does your IT team reevaluate the security measures you have in place?
