Austin, Texas (PRWEB) May 22, 2013
ChooseWhat, the online resource for entrepreneurs and small businesses, released a “Small Business Guide to Information Security" to help business owners easily navigate the ever-changing risks associated with your company’s sensitive information. Security breaches have been on the rise in the last few years, but lately have increased in the small business community. According to a recent survey by the UK Department for Business Innovation & Skills, 87 percent of small businesses had a security breach in the last year. This is mostly due to the fact that most small businesses do not have sufficient security awareness training and protocol. In fact, over half of the companies that experienced security breaches claimed they were due to staff-related incidents.
“Hackers have elevated their standards, and while breaking into your computer is nice, breaking into your server is that much sweeter — with much more bandwidth, storage, visibility, and potentially valuable content. Hacking has also gone from a black art to an easy diversion, practiced by thousands of miscreants and aided by publicly available tools and utilities. You should be ready for a security breach, just like any other disaster that might befall your business.” – David Chang, security expert and digital strategist at FindAFax.com
