Small businesses take heed: Some hackers are using small businesses as an entry point to larger companies.
For example, the successful attack on Target was through an HVAC company. It’s no longer just about your own data security. Today, small businesses must also be able to placate their new business prospects, clients and customers’ security concerns by demonstrating their own security.
What are potential security holes that small businesses should consider? And how can a service-based small business shore up those holes?
Part of the answer is “technology.”
But it’s equally about the business practices, like identifying relevant compliance requirements, ensuring you have the expertise — either in-house or from an outside firm — and communicating all of this to your customers and prospects.
