Cybersecurity for small business: Tips for keeping data safe

FORT SMITH, Ark – The internet has opened up some incredible opportunities for small businesses. You only have to look at the biggest businesses around today—global retail giants like Amazon, or social media firms like Facebook—for proof of its power.

A quarter of a century ago, a lot of these businesses simply didn’t exist. The exponential growth that these businesses have enjoyed would have been almost unthinkable before the internet age. However, at the same time, the number of potential security threats has grown at an almost equally fast rate.

There are, unfortunately, a great many potential security vulnerabilities when operating online. The list is an extensive one: malware, phishing and ransomware scams, cyberattacks, and data breaches, to name just a few. Needless to say, this array of cybersecurity threats can pose serious dangers to small businesses, perhaps even threatening their very existence.

As the global shift towards remote work gathers further momentum, we can expect to confront new and proliferating cybersecurity threats in the years ahead. Without continual vigilance, and robust protections, small businesses could be at real risk from unscrupulous cybercriminals.

In this post, we’ll provide you with top cybersecurity tips to help you protect your small business against cyber threats.
