Online security is something that needs to be taken seriously, especially when it comes to your business. The internet provides us with great business opportunities but can also expose us to security risks if not appropriately protected.

 
The estimated global financial loss average from a cyber-security incident is around $2.7 million with organizations reporting losses of over $20 million between 2013 and 2014. Most of the cyber threats would be expected to be targeted towards larger companies but that still doesn’t mean that smaller companies are entirely safe.
 
 
Cyber-attacks can be done to attempt to steal important and personal information and it is reported that 90% of small and medium sized businesses in the US don’t use any form of data protection for their company and customer information which is not good news. So how can we change this?
 
The following infographic from our friends at Modis looks into some of the greatest cyber threats challenging your business and what you can do to prevent them. Some of the suggestions include using two-level authentication for passwords, encrypting data and backing up data both offline and offsite.
 
Have a look at the infographic below to help assess how you can reduce the risk of your business being targeted by cyber threats.
