While cyberattacks on big companies dominate the news, attacks on small businesses are more common than you think. And despite the continued rapid adoption of cloud computing, security remains a key issue for startups. According to the Cloud Security Report 2020 by Check Point Software Technologies, 75 percent of cybersecurity professionals confirm they are very concerned about public cloud security. The report also found that among the biggest security threats facing public clouds, organisations ranked misconfiguration of the cloud platform (68 percent) highest, followed by unauthorised access (58 percent), insecure interfaces (52 percent), and hijacking of accounts (50 percent).
Often small businesses get tied up with the more pressing parts of the business such as sales and operations that they overlook security. While large enterprises can weather the storm that follows a cyberattack, the same can devastate a small business. It’s imperative that startups develop a strong 360-degree cybersecurity strategy and implement it to combat costly threats such as malware, ransomware and bots.
