Most data breach cases that are reported in the news usually revolve around large corporations like Target, Home Depot, and Sony, but in reality, small- to medium-sized companies are also at risk. According to a Verizon study, 71% of data breaches affect companies with fewer than 100 employees.
Data breaches impact several small companies. According to a National Cyber Security Alliance study, as much as 60% of small- to medium-sized companies close their doors within 6 months of a data breach incident. This is because businesses are unprepared for these incidents and often have difficulty recovering from the damages.
