Join Us for a Twitter Chat: SMB Internet Security

Twitter chat SMB security

Join us, along with Symantec SMB security experts, on Twitter on Thursday, April 25, at 9 am Pacific (12 noon Eastern) for a discussion about how cyber criminals are targeting small businesses.

You’ll get a chance to discuss the findings in Symantec’s recently-released report on Internet Security Threats.  The Report covers the major threat trends observed by Symantec in 2012.  It reveals that cybercriminals view SMBs as a prime target. In fact, the largest growth area for targeted attacks in 2012 was businesses with fewer than 250 employees.  Thirty-one percent (31%) of all attacks targeted them, almost tripling over 2011.

To know how to protect your business nad improve security, the first step is to get a clear understanding of the dangers.  This year’s report is a wake-up call that SMBs are now being specifically targeted by cybercriminals.

Mark your calendars to join #SMBchat and learn how to protect your small business from attackers.
