Following Cisco’s SMB Cybersecurity Report, which has revealed that 53% of midmarket companies have experienced a data breach, Todd Peterson, Product Manager at One Identity, discusses why they are such an attractive target to hackers and how they can protect against attack.
Todd Peterson, Product Manager at One Identity:
“There are so many more SMBs than there are large enterprises, so the number of targets is much higher. Also, SMBs generally have less money to spend on security than large organizations and have smaller staffs dedicated to IT security.
To protect themselves, SMBs need to do the same things as large enterprises – ensure that access control is in place and actually put some thought into it, control and monitor administrator access and privileged accounts and automate and consolidate to remove as much human error as possible.”
