Save the Date: #SMBchat on Symantec Internet Security Threat Report
Join Symantec SMB security experts on Twitter (using the #SMBchat hashtag) on Thursday, April 25, at 9 a.m. PT / 12 p.m. ET to chat about the key trends highlighted in Symantec’s recently released Internet Security Threat Report (ISTR), Volume 18.
The ISTR, which covers the major threat trends observed by Symantec in 2012, reveals that cybercriminals view SMBs as a prime target for stealing information. In fact, the largest growth area for targeted attacks in 2012 was businesses with fewer than 250 employees; 31 percent of all attacks targeted them, representing a threefold increase from 2011.
Getting a clear understanding of the dangers is an important step in improving security, and this year’s report is a wake-up call that SMBs are now being specifically targeted by cybercriminals.
Mark your calendars to join #SMBchat and learn how to protect your small business from attackers.
