Today, the cyber threat to companies, especially small companies, is unprecedented. Ginni Rometty, IBM’s CEO, states “Cybercrime is the greatest threat to every company in the world.”

Many small companies believe that they are immune from such cyberattacks because of their small size. Unfortunately, this is not the case. In fact, according to Symantec, over 43% of attacks in 2015 were targeted toward small businesses this number will only rise. Furthermore, only 14% of small businesses believe that their current ability to guard against cyber attacks is effective.
