Countering cyber attacks and safeguarding the core systems of an organization is proving to be a formidable task to numerous online businesses. As the sophistication of cyber criminals has increased tremendously, companies both small and large have been alarmed by the recent cyber attacks that wreaked havoc in terms of leak of confidential data, loss of data or digital assets, invasion of malicious code or viruses.
According to ComScore, the yearly U.S. retail e-commerce spending has increased 143% since 2004 to $161.52 billion last year. In addition, e-commerce spending grew 14% last holiday season to $37.2 billion. Furthermore, MarketLive has indicated that online spending is gaining momentum and is expected to surge 17% accounting to $54.47 billion this season. This data underscores the increasing popularity of online shopping in the backdrop of cyber criminals in the online virtual world.
Every business is susceptible to cyber attacks, and the numbers are astounding when it comes to their impact on small businesses. According to NCSA, the average cost of cyber attack for small businesses in 2010 accounted to $188,242. Also, a study by Symantec revealed that 60% of small businesses close their operations within six months of an attack. Now with the holiday season around, small business owners are concerned about the vulnerability of cyber attacks aimed at crippling online sales.
