For years, small businesses were an unlikely target for sophisticated cyber attacks. Anonymity and smallness, it was thought, would provide a level of security in and of itself. Not anymore! In 2012, a report from Symantec found that attacks on small businesses had increased 300 percent from the previous year. And that trend has shown no signs of slowing down. The reality is that most small and medium businesses (SMB) are attractive targets because they tend to be less secure and automation allows modern criminals to mass produce attacks very cheaply.
