3. The Importance of Cybersecurity

The biggest mistake for small business owners is to assume that their business is small and cannot be targeted for security attacks. Compared to the past, cyberattacks have been on the rise recently, and all companies should be aware that cyberattacks can occur at any time. Even the best IT team can’t protect a company alone from a cyberattack that can happen day and night.
