Educate your employees about phishing scams
According to the Better Business Bureau no matter the location, size or industry a company is in, small businesses are especially vulnerable to scams. Some start-ups and less mature companies don't have the cybersecurity support or established accounting that larger companies may have. This can make them more of a target for hackers.
Educating your employees about these types of scams, the negative effects of even one click on a link, is a necessary first step against falling victim to hackers. As a small business, do you have a plan in place to respond and recover from a phishing scam? What is your risk? How long will it take for you to recover? These are the questions you should ask yourself as a leader and be prepared for the worst in an evolving cybersecurity climate.
