Why Care About Security
- Symantec reports that almost half of cyber-attacks worldwide, 43%, last year were against small businesses with less than 250 workers.
- "It's a lot easier way to make money than physically robbing banks," says Avivah Litan, security and fraud analyst at Gartner Research. "And the chance of getting caught is less than 1 percent." Litan is referring to the chances of cyber criminals getting caught hacking a business.
- With 1.5 million annual cyber attacks, online crime is a real threat to anyone on the Internet. That number means there are over 4,000 cyber attacks every day, 170 attacks every hour, or nearly three attacks every minute. - CNNMoney
