A common cyberattack strategy hackers like to use involves scanning the target’s system for vulnerabilities. Once a weakness is discovered, they leverage it to their advantage. And for cybercriminals, it’s not the size of the business that matters, it’s the ease of access.
Although many small and medium-size businesses (SMBs) think they are too insignificant to draw the attention of hackers, breach reports prove otherwise: 66% of SMBs experienced a cyberattack in the past 12 months. Most of those attacks – 70% were executed via web applications and miscellaneous errors – internal vulnerabilities.
