Do you have a dedicated IT person?

Cybersecurity is a complex, extremely fast moving and dynamic challenge for our nation and for every business. Today's security solutions automate many of the processes involved with protecting individuals or businesses. However, businesses are much better off having someone knowledgeable such as an IT person or team, or a value-added reseller or managed services provider, who can make sure software is deployed correctly and keep you abreast of security issues.

Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), vital to the U.S. economy, are vulnerable when it comes to cybersecurity. Small business owners often make the mistake of thinking that their data will have little value to hackers. Yet, financial accounts and employee, customer or partner information are all appealing to cyber criminals, and if SMBs are unprepared, even more accessible.

The cybersecurity experts over at F-Secure have compiled the following information to help small and medium-sized business owners assess their exposure to cyber threats.
