43% Of all cyberattacks target small to medium size business – non enterprise environments. Due to lack of funds and/or resources, smaller companies typically do not implement high security measures thus establishing themselves as lucrative targets for ransomware attacks.
In addition to lack of resources, there are many SMBs that are not as concerned about ransomware attacks. To think their company data is less valuable than larger organizations is actually the exact opposite of what threat actors think, according to the 2021 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR). Financial gain – not just stealing confidential info - was the central motive for threat actors who target SMBs both small (fewer than 1,000 employees) and large (more than 1,000 employees).
To ensure network security, it’s important to first know where the flaws and vulnerabilities lie within the network. Note, vulnerabilities and risks are 2 different things. Risk is the chance of an attack on a network by various means whereas a vulnerability is the exact point or weakness within the network. To determine network vulnerabilities, vulnerability scanning and patch management should be done frequently.
