The recent news headlines have shown data breaches targeting companies like Facebook, Under Armour, Panera, & Ticketfly. Attacks don’t just happen to large enterprise corporations, they happened to organizations of all sizes especially small businesses. 62% of all cybersecurity attacks are done to small and medium businesses. Why is that? Well if you think about large corporations they have more resources,  available funds, and need to answer to more people so they do not have as many security breaches (although they get attacked constantly). When a small or medium business is attacked a majority of the time they do not even know they were attacked, have the resources to identify it, or have the staffing resources with the security skillset. Your most important asset next to your employees is your data. This can be customer and client data, employee information, databases, files etc. which can all be sold on the dark web and used against you or used by your competition. The legal fees, fines, penalties and damaged reputation associated with a data breach could be thousands of dollars per record. How many records do you have in your database?
