Cybercrime has increasingly become a huge threat the world over.
According to the Cybersecurity Market Report, in order to deal with the rising tide of cyber threats, the global cyber security expenditure, in all likelihood, will exceed $1 trillion over the next five years, that is to say, from 2017 to 2021.
Cybercrimes include data damage and destruction, intellectual property theft, identity thefts and scams, and reputational harm. Well, the bad news is that nearly 50% of the cyber attacks are targeted toward the small businesses. And what’s even worse is the fact that the world’s cyber attack surface is only growing bigger! The good news is that with the help of managed IT services, you can keep cyber crimes at bay!
