Be Smart and Avoid This Comforting Belief
Someone told me today, as is common: Attackers are only interested in hacking large businesses.
Believing that small to mid-size businesses are not targets helps business owners and executives sleep better at night. The thought is comforting.
However, the reality is that instead of choosing targets based on organization size, the majority of attackers choose soft, easy to breach, targets. In particular, that category includes work-from-home computers.
In our consulting business, we’re seeing many firms suffer major breaches that originate at an unsuspecting work-from-home user’s computer.
Please forward this to your friends so they know that it may feel comforting to believe attackers only go after the big companies, that belief is putting their organization at tremendous risk.
