It's National Cybersecurity Awareness Month


No-one can afford to be complacent

Small and medium-sized businesses are the backbone of the American economy—and for this reason, they have become increasing targets for cybercriminals.

The 2019 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report found that 43 percent of breaches involved small business victims. Considering that many small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) have limited budgets and staff to address cyber threats, there is a significant need for education, awareness, and affordable resources within the community.

To that end, EXCEL will be posting cybersecurity-related information throughout the month of October. Today, with a tip o’ the hat to David Letterman, we’re going to begin with a Top Ten List—Ten Common Cybersecurity Misconceptions for Small and Medium-Sized Organizations. These include misconceptions about the value of data, misunderstandings about the technological nature of the problem, and errant assumptions about the size of the investment needed for protection. It’s an important overview and and an excellent place to begin your research.
