The Internet is a force multiplier, allowing businesses of all sizes to reach more customers, better service those customers and ultimately be more competitive. By utilizing the Internet, many small and medium businesses can be much more successful. However technological advances cut both ways.
While improved connectivity, communication, and Web presence provide benefits to small and medium businesses (SMBs), it can also resulted in an increase of Internet based security threats and expose the business to criminal elements that they wouldn't normally encounter. If customers can find you so can cybercriminals. The most damaging cyber attack against small and medium businesses is when cybercriminals implant malware on a company's computers, and use that malware to gain access to the company's bank accounts via online-banking.
This webcast is designed to bring the growing cyberthreats and protection strategies to the attention of executives and employees of small and medium enterprises. In this webcast, IDC's analyst, using survey data, recent threat data, and insight, will provide the following information:
* Highlight threats and successful attacks directed towards SMBs
* Identify the special needs for SMB cybersecurity
* Explain companies' existing attitudes around cybersecurity
* Discuss the key security technologies SMBs should consider
* Highlight what features and support companies should look for from their security vendors
