SMB Data Breach Fallout
For any organization a data breach is a disruptive experience. Besides the distraction from daily operations, and unwanted publicity, a data breach brings a huge financial burden as well. Most large businesses have the resources to weather the storm, but many small and mid size businesses aren't as fortunate. Most SMBs don't have the capital or technical talent on staff to properly respond to a data security breach. Given that 71% of data breaches target small businesses, I thought it would be beneficial to discuss the fallout of a security breach and the impact it could have to a small business.
