Only 30 Percent of U.S. Small Businesses Consider Cybersecurity Important Priority to Invest In
Fewer than 30% of small businesses in the United States view cybersecurity as a priority to invest in, according to data from Tech.co.
This is despite a staggering 62% of small US businesses suggesting security breaches are a significant threat to their business growth.
Small US businesses see the following as a priority:
- Financial software, eg accounting, bill payment
- Productivity software, eg Google apps or Microsoft Office
- Customer relationship management application or system
Tech.co Deputy Editor Jack Turner said: “Our research findings should be a real wake up call for small businesses.
“With Cyberattacks on the increase, and ransomware attacks capable of crippling companies financially, not investing in Cybersecurity in order to save a few bucks could prove an incredibly costly decision.”
