Cyber security for small businesses

Cyber security for small businesses

When a data breach occurs at a mighty conglomerate, it’s all over the news and social media—but what happens when it’s an attack against the little guy? A report by cyber security firm Symantec stated that almost half of the cyber attacks worldwide in 2015 (43%) were against small businesses, because attackers see small businesses as an easy or “soft” target. You need the basic know-how to protect your digital self, and that’s what this course aims to do.

In this course, you will learn about the main types of attacks that impact small businesses, how to spot them, how to proactively protect your digital self, and what to do if you are a victim of an attack.
