When it comes to cybersecurity and small business, many owners don’t realize what they’re up against. Cyber criminals love small businesses! Why? Because they store tons of sensitive data (credit cards, contact info, etc.) but oftentimes don’t have robust security systems, because they think they are “too small” to be a target of a cyber attack.
