Why cyberhackers go after small businesses?

When it comes to starting a small business, new owners have many decisions to make and often leave cybersecurity measures by the wayside. Unless they focus on shoring up their defenses, they may inadvertently end up leaving points of entry wide open for hackers. That can be a major problem. A report by the U.S. National Cyber Security Alliance estimated that 60% of all SMBs fail within six months of a cyberattack.

According to Towergate Insurance, SMBs often underestimate their risk level, with 82% of SMB owners saying they're not targets for attacks. They believe that, researchers said, because they feel they "don't have anything worth stealing."
