Improve your information security practices with our SMB Security Package.
Could your business withstand a $200,000 loss?
According to insurance carrier Hiscox, the consequences of cyberattacks continue to grow, with digital incidents now costing businesses of all sizes $200,000 on average. SMB (Small & Midsize Business) security has never been more important, but it remains extremely expensive to implement. A recent article published by infosecurity magazine concluded that for small businesses to implement effective cybersecurity measures, it would cost considerably more as a percentage of operational budget than it would for larger organizations – up to around 4% compared with 1-2% for enterprises.
Historically, cybercriminals have been focused on targeting the enterprise, but as information security has improved, criminals have turned their attention to smaller businesses.

SMB Security Impacts
The average cost of a security breach affecting small to midsize businesses increased by 61% from $229k in 2018 to $369k in 2019, while a recent “Cost of a Data Breach” survey conducted by Ponemon Institute detailed how the healthcare industry faced the highest cost per record data breach cost, at $408 per compromised record; that’s nearly three times the average of $148.
On top of the cost of remediation efforts, which can include providing identity theft protection, security upgrades, and 3rd party expenses, small to midsize organizations are likely to also face many other indirect costs, some of which include, but are not limited to:
- Shutdown costs for remediation
- Lawsuits/fines from regulators
- Class Action Lawsuits
- Loss of brand value
- Increases in insurance costs
