The threat of hackers and cyber-criminals is very real, not only for large companies but also for small businesses as well. That means that business owners must accept that a strong cyber-defense system is a must in the modern business world. It is worth noting, while an internal plan may work, external resources particularly those of experts in the field can greatly improve your security measures.

This quote says it all. Small businesses are just as vulnerable, if not more so, than business with large IT budgets.

Rather it is an essential aspect in doing business especially in cyberspace.
