Now you might think that this is a false threat and it could be. Or, it could be closer to the truth than you would like to imagine. These days, a break-in should not be the greatest security concern for a business owner. Instead, they need to spend more time worrying about a digital attack on their business. Why is this?
They’re Targeting Your Customers, Not You
Yes, if you are hit by a cyber attack, there’s quite a big chance, they won’t go after you. Instead, they’ll use the information that they steal from your servers to go after customers. There’s a simple reason for this. Business owners will notice if large amounts of money start flooding out of their accounts. Customers often take awhile before they realize that they are a victim of cyber fraud.
Anti-Virus Software Isn’t Enough
You might think that if you have anti-virus software, you’re protected from the biggest security threats. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case. In many instances, an anti-virus software won’t even be able to stop a virus. If you ran a virus check on your system right now, it might come back with no issue found. But there could still be a trojan virus on your system that has managed to escape detection.
