Article | February 25, 2020

Lacking the time, IT expertise, and deep pockets of major companies, the small businesses that make up the foundation of the economy are sitting ducks — especially considering that 43% of all cyberattacks target small businesses specifically. In order to help small and midsize businesses get ahead of this issue, Congress passed the Small Business Cybersecurity Act in 2018.

The act resulted in the Small Business Cybersecurity Corner website. Launched in 2019, it provides a centralized source of everything from information about dangerous cyberattacks to employee training tips.

Now it’s up to those small businesses to take that advice and run with it.
