One Third of SMBs Lack Cybersecurity Training

Let’s be clear: Small-to-medium size organizations (SMBs) are every bit at risk from cybercrime as large organizations. In fact, the risk is almost greater at this level because SMBs lack the resources to bounce back from a devastating attack.

Consider this: 60 percent of SMBs will shut down within six months of a security breach.

That being said, there is a widespread, false sense of cybersecurity happening among business leaders at  the SMB level. In fact, in a recent study 95 percent of IT professionals claimed that their cybersecurity strategy is above average; yet 100 percent of the same respondents think they could improve their systems…

To that point, there is also an alarming lack of cybersecurity training at the SMB level.

About one third of U.S.-based SMBs that were recently surveyed claim that they don’t receive any cybersecurity training. And nearly half of SMBs would be willing to participate in it if it were offered.

Why offer cybersecurity training? Your business’s network is only as strong as its weakest link. So it’s important to convey that cybersecurity is everyone’s responsibility — regardless of the role they play in an organization.

Consider this: All it took was one compromised Microsoft Word document to cause a recent data breach at Victoria University. Something like this could easily take down your business, too. And so it’s vital to train employees on how to watch out for this type of malevolent activity online.
