A surprising number of SMBs surveyed report they have been victimized by attacks and have suffered direct losses as a result, and more companies say they are concerned and taking steps to protect themselves.
"Small and midsize businesses are waking up to the threat of online attacks and information loss, which they now rank as their top business risks. Perhaps it's because 73% of SMBs report that they've been the victims of cyber-attacks in the past year, and 42% have lost confidential or proprietary information. As a result, all affected businesses suffered direct losses, either in revenue or clean-up costs.
Those findings come from the new 2010 Global SMB Information Protection Survey released today by Symantec. For the report, Applied Research surveyed 2,152 executives and decision-makers at small and midsize businesses -- defined as having 10 to 499 employees -- in 28 countries, in May 2010."
