What are the Challenges around Cyber Security for Medium Sized Businesses?


Cyber security is a desirable and essential aspect for every technologically driven business, but there are challenges around it. For medium businesses, for instance, the challenges are rather distinct:


Lack of Awareness

Due to a wrong perception associating cybersecurity with big corporations, medium businesses do not fully understand the current reality surrounding cyber security risks.

Budget Constraints

A comprehensive cyber security policy – which entails suitable tools and well-trained staff – requires large budget allocations, something many medium businesses have no capacity to achieve.

A False Sense of Security

Among medium businesses, there is over-reliance and dependence on internal IT staff or third-party IT providers for their cyber security.

Hackers rarely stage brute-force attacks on businesses. Often, it’s far easier to exploit existing security loopholes in software apps and your network security perimeter. Defensity cyber security testing prevents this by scouring your network for vulnerabilities ahead of time.
