Why cybersecurity is important for small businesses
Cyber criminals consistently target businesses in an attempt to weaken our nation’s supply chain, threaten our national security, and endanger the American way of life.
Your small business may be at risk for cyber attacks that can cause damage in many ways, including:
- Identity Theft
- Business Interruption
- Reputation Damage
- Proprietary Information Theft
- Hardware/Software Repair
- Litigation Fees
- Contract Loss
Cyber attacks can be very costly for a business when you factor in ransom costs, business downtime, and system restoration.
You need to know that your company’s systems and data are secure to do business with the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) or any Federal agency. You’ll need to demonstrate your ability to protect Federal Contract Information (FCI) and Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI).
