Mitigation Strategies for Cyber Attacks at Your Small Business

If you’re wondering how to protect your small business against a cyber attack, you’re not alone. Almost 60% of cyber attack victims are small businesses, and within two years of the first attack, the likelihood that a small business will experience another is approximately 28%

In response, entrepreneurs everywhere are looking for a mitigation strategy that limits any potential damage while meeting their business needs. Even if you implement preventive security measures, such as keeping your website software up-to-date, perfect cybersecurity is never a guarantee, especially as hackers become more persistent and use more sophisticated methods.

Types of Cybersecurity Threats Your Incident Response Plan Should Include

Cybersecurity threats aren’t going away anytime soon. In fact, our annual security report illustrates that the number of daily website attack attempts increased by 59% between January 2018 and December 2018. This increase shows that cybercriminals are not only deploying attacks more often, but also using automation technology to do so. 

The good news? These attempts appear to be getting less successful. Of the 6 million individual websites that we analyzed, only 60,000 were actually compromised following an attack attempt, indicating that website security tools are getting better at fending off attacks.

What is an Incident Response Plan — and Why Does Your Small Business Need One?

Responding to a cyberattack can be confusing, complicated, overwhelming, and often all-consuming. In the wake of an attack, many small businesses don’t know what to do first or how to avoid making the situation worse. Creating a well-thought-out plan in advance, however, can make incident response in cybersecurity both easier and more effective. In fact, every small business should have a cyber incident response plan in place to help mitigate damage in the wake of a cyberattack.

An incident response plan should outline how a business will detect an attack, what needs to happen to limit the consequences, and ultimately how to remove the threat. At each point, the plan should identify who’s responsible for which activity, which tools to use, and how to coordinate both internal and external communications.

The Financial Impact of Cyber Attacks is Greater Than You Think

Here’s a common scenario: You receive a notification saying your small business website has been hit with a cyberattack. Suddenly, the web host has suspended your site, and you’ve been blacklisted from major search engines because your site poses a risk to visitors. Essentially, your website turns invisible.

Amid the chaos, you need to understand and fix the problem. Many small businesses rely on contracted web developers, who, in turn, rely on someone else for cybersecurity. The security provider needs to get involved immediately because the longer the problem persists, the worse the damage becomes.

Cybersecurity Year in Review and Our Predictions Moving Forward

Our most recent cybersecurity research is now available in the “Cybersecurity Trends in 2019: Protecting Websites in the Age of Stealth Attacks” report. In it, we identified the trends, threats, and innovations in cybercrime that small businesses need to know about in order to keep their websites secure. We also look to the future, taking a good hard look at what last year’s lessons will mean moving forward.

To compile this cybersecurity industry report, we analyzed 6 million individual websites using an algorithm our team developed to evaluate website vulnerability. The goal was to identify attack patterns and risk factors based on the types of vulnerabilities present in websites and the types of attacks today’s hackers deploy. The result is a comprehensive report that offers website administrators important insights into online security.

A Cybersecurity Checklist for the Modern Small Business [Top 8 Tips]

Security is one of the most important aspects of any website. This is especially true today considering the fact that cybercrime continues to be a serious threat for businesses and users.

Chatbot Security Risks: What you need to know before starting an online chat

What is a chatbot? Put in simple words, a chatbot is a software solution that uses machine learning to have a conversation (or chat as it is called) with another user online. You’ve likely seen these when you visit a website for a bank, or credit card company, a car sales website, or even a software business.

A few seconds after you land on the page, or sometimes upon arrival, a pop-up will appear that says something like “Hi, how can I help you?” or “Is there something you’re looking for?” If you answer the prompt, your chat with the bot will begin. Based on your responses additional prompts may be provided, or you might be redirected to a live representative for more help.
