Are small to medium sized businesses (SMBs) prepared for a cyber attack? Not according to a new study by Webroot which indicated that just 37% of IT decision makers surveyed in the US, the UK and Australia believe their organizations to be completely ready to manage IT security and protect against threats. Furthermore, many believe they lack the resources needed to protect themselves against malware attacks.
Are organizations completely ready to stop cyber attacks? highlighted that within the majority of SMBs, IT teams are expected to handle all cyber security management and concerns, with IT employees at nearly a third of companies (32%) having to juggle security along with other IT responsibilities. This leaves employees stretched thin and unable to devote the necessary time to many critical cyber security tasks.
