Business Computers At Risk
Every day you read in the media about business computers being hacked. There are four staggering figures every business needs to know:
90% of companies’ computers have been hacked, according to Jupiter Communications
67% chance, according to Symantec, of going out of business within a year if the hackers steal a business’s bank user name/password and pretend to be the owner of the account.
$1 billion stolen from business bank accounts and the number is tripling every year, according to the FBI. The bank isn't liable for the business’s loss since they think the person moving the money is the owner of the account.
$8.9 million is the average amount a business spends on cyber security, according to a 2012 Ponemon
Clearly small businesses can’t spend millions of dollars to protect their computers. A less expensive alternative, which was featured in the Wall Street, Commercial Deposit Insurance (www.cdiaus.com), which cost less than $180 a year and insures bank accounts for up to $50,000.
