Next Security Checklist: Preparing for a Cyber Attack-2 Next

When budgets are tight, money is funneled toward the revenue-generating parts of the business, and security is placed on the back burner. Smaller organizations especially do not think they will be attacked and do not understand the value of security. They also often lack knowledgeable staff, training and resources. It is necessary for organizations of all sizes to dedicate sufficient resources to training and hiring IT staff, or to outsource their security needs to a third-party provider.

Recent reports have found that cyber attacks against U.S. corporations are on the rise, along with an increase in international threats, especially from China, and emerging threats to small businesses. Today, it’s not a matter of if an organization will be the victim of a cyber attack, but when.
