Criminals and hackers work in tandem to obtain confidential data from your company or organization, to steal identity information from your website users, to damage your reputation or simply to use your website to distribute malware to not only your users but others as well.
New businesses are most susceptible to cyber attacks, and criminals are taking advantage of that by targeting startups when they are weak, according to a new study released by Symantec.
-- Estimated 388 million entrepreneurs across the world started or ran a new business in 2012.
-- The largest growth area for cyber attacks last year involved businesses with fewer than 250 employees.
-- Thirty-one percent of security breaches were directed at small- and medium-sized businesses, a threefold increase from two years ago.
-- Number of web-based attacks increased 30 percent last year among businesses.
