Hacking a Small Business

In this modern age where technology is at the forefront, businesses are being forced to adapt to a digital world. However, this also leave them vulnerable for cyber attacks, in particular small businesses. While small business owners may falsely believe that hacking their company is not worth a hacker's time and effort, they are very mistaken. Small companies are quickly becoming the leading target for hackers as their lack of resources for security protection makes them an easy victim.

The Hack

Hackers are constantly formulating new ways to obtain sensitive information that puts your company and your clients at risk. Often they will try to infiltrate your company through an emailed web link, once you click it your computer becomes the victim of a virus. This may lead to files and information being stolen or encrypted.
Another scam is when the criminal hacks into the email of a CEO or person high up in the company, they tell someone in finances to approve a transfer of funds, citing their authority, and the money is moved into the possession of the hacker.  

Often hacking is monetarily motivated. Thus, when the criminal gains possession of important information they subsequently hold it for ransom. A company who does not want to lose important information or have their client's sensitive information leaked will pay the ransom money.  
How To Protect Your Company

It is imperative that mitigating a hack be proactive and not reactive. This includes having up-to-date software and malware on electronic devices. As well, assure passwords are complex and changed on a regular basis. Furthermore, educating your employees about the risk of a security breach can also help prevent an attack through human error. It may also be useful to invest in a method of backing up the information that is most important to your company.
