71% of data breaches happen to businesses with less than 100 employees
Data breaches don’t just happen to large companies like Target and Home Depot, they are happening to businesses of all sizes.

Small and midsize businesses (SMBs) spend less on cybersecurity than larger organizations. Cybercriminals often target SMBs because they have a lot of personally identifiable information that can be used for identity theft, tax fraud and other financial crimes.
SMBs collect customer, employee and vendor names, addresses, social security numbers, dates of birth, driver’s licenses and insurance information. This information is everything a criminal needs to commit identity theft and other cybercrimes.
