Cyberattacks in Real Time
Now, consider this…

For every high-profile case, there are dozens of cyber threats held by small businesses and everyday enterprises.

Any organization that uses some form of technology to do business faces cyber risk. As technology becomes more advanced and sophisticated, so do the threats we face. That is why every type of business – large or small – should be prepared with cyber liability insurance.

However, a shockingly low number of small businesses have invested in cyber liability insurance to combat the potentially devastating effects of a cyberattack. Many small business owners are unaware of the high risk of data breaches at their own establishment and believe that hackers are more likely to attack higher profile businesses. This is understandable, as the newsworthiness of data breaches at larger corporation often overshadows the more frequent security violations that target small businesses.
