Tip #2: Understand your device.

From a user's standpoint, bring your own device (BYOD) is a great idea for work, but from a security standpoint, it's a terrible idea. There's a clear need for BYOD in business, but users are playing the bad luck lottery – odds are small, but first prize is a substantial loss of money. So how do you make BYOD security easy for the user? Teach employees how to properly use their devices. That's much easier – and just as important – as them learning about security.

Small to midsized businesses (SMBs) are vital to the U.S. economy, yet they are often the most vulnerable when it comes to cybersecurity. As a small business owner, you might assume your data will have little value to hackers, but financial accounts and employee, customer or partner information are all enticing to cyber criminals.

The cybersecurity experts at F-Secure have compiled the following predictions and tips to help small and medium-sized business owners stay secure in 2015.
