In addition to highlighting the cost of data breaches for large corporations, it also addresses the impact of a data breach for small businesses.
“Big data breaches make headlines, but that doesn’t mean smaller businesses are immune,” said Emily Maxie, marketing director for SIGNiX. “In fact, small businesses are often easier and more attractive targets for cyber criminals than retail giants.”
Almost half of small businesses report having been victim to at least one cyber attack, with an average $8,699.48 cost for each breach, according to the National Small Business Association.
“We hope this infographic will catch the attention of business owners and help them understand the importance of digital security,” Maxie said.
