Safe & Secure In Cyberspace
Are you cybersafe? The recent theft of personal information from Target shoppers—noted by some experts as one of the largest cyber crimes of all time—highlighted the sophistication of cyber criminals and the increasing vulnerability of businesses and customers alike. Small-to mid-size businesses are falling victim to cyber criminals at an alarming rate. A recent study by Verizon estimates that 70 percent or more of data breaches in 2012 impacted companies of fewer than 100 employees.
