Closing the IT Security Gap in Mid-Market Companies
When criminals, foreign governments, or supposed activist organizations launch cyber attacks on businesses, it only makes the news when big corporations are the targets, but mid-size companies are the victims of these same type of attacks more often than people think. In fact, small and mid-size companies are more frequently becoming the targets of attacks because hackers view their data as easy to access. Attackers know this because mid-size companies invest far less in cyber security than their larger counterparts, partly because they think they are obscure targets. In order to close this security gap, smaller companies will need to reevaluate their IT security needs and start relying more on service providers like Google and their cloud computing solutions.
