Across the nation, employee phishing is running rampant. Ransomware brought an airport offline and an NBA team’s online store was leaking credit card information just last week alone. On a list of last week’s notable breaches, the average company size is only 11-50 employees.
Hackers are no longer focusing on enterprise-sized targets – they are focusing on small companies that don’t have the time and/or money to secure themselves properly.
