If you think you’re too small for hackers to direct their malware your way, think again. The number of targeted attacks against SMBs, where cybercriminals specifically target organizations using customized malware and social engineering, has doubled in the first six months of 2012. Many smaller businesses find themselves vulnerable to these attacks because they have fewer defenses and limited budgets.

Join Symantec’s security experts and small business expert Anita Campbell of Small Business Trends on Thursday, July 19 at 1:00 p.m. PT / 4:00 p.m. ET to chat about the latest threats to SMBs and how to protect your company from targeted attacks.

SMBs need to take steps to educate employees about the latest internet-based threats and how to prevent them, while implementing technologies to protect their valuable information. Our SMB experts will cover the following:

  • How targeted attacks differ from other threats
  • Why cybercriminals are turning their attention to SMBs
  • Protecting your information no matter your OS platform (PC or Mac)
  • The role of employees in defending against targeted attacks
  • Developing an effective defense strategy

Mark your calendars:
