Globally, the internet handles about 71,131 GB of traffic per second, including 2,790,265 emails and 73,849 Google searches per second.
This unimaginable expansion of the internet over the past years also means that the number of cyberattacks on various organisations is rapidly growing, and these attacks are also becoming more elusive than ever before.
Ransomware, spear phishing, malware, drive‑by attacks, DDoS attacks – the list goes on and on. While cyber attacks that make the news are often large in scale, make no mistake that small businesses are being attacked, too.
In fact, small businesses may be more vulnerable to cyber threats than large corporations.
Let’s take a look at some cyber security facts, presented to us by Hiscox’s that will blow your mind!
47% of small businesses had experienced one or more cyber attacks in the past year.
The average cost of cyber security incidents ranges from $34,604 to 1.05 million.
65% of small businesses fail to act following cyber attacks.
7 out of 10 businesses don’t know how to deal with a cyber attack.
Given those stats, cybersecurity should be of utmost concern if you’re going to put your business or services online.
When it comes to the precautions small businesses can take in terms of IT security, many of them are obvious. These include ensuring that antivirus software is up to date and ensuring that company networks are behind well-configured firewalls.
But there’s always more you can do, and one thing well worth considering is the use of Virtual Private Network (VPN) solutions. A VPN; with its highly encrypted tunnel that exits at a remote location is a great defence from cyber attacks, with protection for company assets, which is stronger than a traditional firewall, and therefore more secure from a data breach.
