High-profile cyber attacks on numerous companies have raised awareness of the growing threat of cyber-crime. Recent surveys conducted by the Small Business Authority suggest that many small business owners are still operating under a false sense of cyber security. The vast majority lacks a formal Internet security policy for employees, and only about half  have rudimentary cyber security measures in place. Never equate the small size of your business to the level of safety or security you have. Cyber attacks have the capability to destroy your business, so it is vital to take these simple and economical steps to reduce your risks and costs associated with cyber attacks.
