Email Risk Is Big for SMBs

Amid this unprecedented ongoing global pandemic, email risk is greater than ever - especially for small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). Cybercriminals are readily exploiting the widespread migration to inadequately secured cloud platforms like Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace to accommodate remote workers, and are targeting businesses with sophisticated spear phishing and ransomware attacks designed to steal credentials, lock up critical files and yield hefy payments for attackers.

Small businesses are at a significant disadvantage: they lack the resources and the staff to keep pace with these emerging threats, and email risk is heightened for these companies as a result. Cyber criminals recognize these shortcomings, and are increasingly directing their attacks at SMBs. Thus, prioritizing email security is more critical than ever to an organization’s safety and success - especially for small businesses. 

Is it Worth the Risk?

over 90% of modern cyberattacks begin with a phishing email, and the majority of email attacks don’t discriminate based on the size of your company - although threat actors are arguably shifting their focus to smaller victims. Statistics show that SMBs are the most popular target for ransomware, and a successful attack can result in significant downtime, hefty recovery costs, large fines and ruined reputations - repercussions that can shake any business to the core. Sixty percent of small businesses are unable to recover and go out of businesses within six months of getting hit with ransomware.
