Is My Business Too Small to Worry About Cybersecurity? Many businesses have been putting resources including people, technology, and budgets into protecting themselves from information security and cybersecurity threats. As a result, they have become a more difficult target for malicious attacks from hackers and cyber criminals. Consequently, hackers and cyber criminals are now successfully focusing more of their unwanted attention on less secure businesses. Because small businesses typically don’t have the resources to invest in information security the way larger businesses can, many cyber criminals view them as soft targets.
