Big Breaches in Small Business

There’s no such thing as a small data breach. Anytime a network is compromised, hundreds or even thousands of private citizens’ data are poa

ched by nefarious organizations for profit. It’s the responsibility of all businesses that deal with big data to make sure their customers’ data is secure.

Typically, we hear about the big breaches on the news. The Target Corp. breach is a good example. However, small and medium sized enterprises can be just as at risk as big corporations.

According to the LA Times, a law in California requires a company to give the CA Attorney General’s office a copy of a notice letter sent to all breach victims in the case that more than 500 Californians are affected. Since the law’s start in January 2012, there have been 380 letters sent. That equates to a major breach every 21/2 days.

Even more troubling is the fact that oftentimes, these small enterprises, according to the National Small Business Assn., know little or nothing about cybersecurity.

If you or anyone you know is in business but needs help with big data, AccelOps can help you.

Our services offer constant database, application, network equipment, and network data flow to establish a baseline of activity for your business’s online activities. If there is a hacker breaking in, or malware that has affected your credit card machines or larger network, AccelOps will notify your organization so you can take action to solve the threat.

Securing the network is very important. A data breach results not only in money wasted repairing the system, but also paying out damages to those involved. The drop in reputation is probably the worst consequence. A secure network costs less and preempts those negative consequences.
