Unfortunately, cyber-attacks are a growing threat to small businesses. A cyber-attack can be malicious malware that will damage a computer or server, a computer virus, phishing to collect confidential information, or ransomware to restrict computer access until a ransom is paid. Cybersecurity Ventures reports that cybercrimes will cost the world $6 trillion annually by 2021.
With small businesses relying on remote workers, there’s even more considerable risk with employees not having adequate cybersecurity resources and knowledge of computer security issues.The Small Business Association of America’s recent survey indicated that 88% of small business owners felt vulnerable to a cyber-attack. Sadly, the vulnerability is a reality, making cyber liability insurance a must-have for small business owners. This insurance is sometimes referred to as media insurance.
