FRESNO, California – Cody Sarhan, Communications Specialist
In 2023, small businesses within California witnessed a significant escalation in cyber threats that in some cases shuttered those businesses for good. Those attacks are only getting worse, as cybercrime damages are expected to reach $10.5 trillion annually by 2025, up from $3 trillion in 2015.
This alarming trend underscores the urgency for robust security measures, especially for small businesses in California, which are increasingly becoming targets for cybercriminals. A study by Accenture revealed that 43% of cyber-attacks are aimed at small businesses, yet only 14% are prepared to defend themselves.
“Small businesses often have fewer resources and lack security expertise, which leaves them more vulnerable to spear-phishing attacks, and cybercriminals are taking advantage,” — Don MacLennan, Former SVP of Engineering & Product Management at Barracuda
California’s small businesses face unique cybersecurity challenges. The state’s robust economy and technological diversity make it a lucrative target for cybercriminals. California leads the nation in monetary losses through cybercrime, with losses exceeding $2 billion in 2022 – yes that’s billion with a B. The second highest is Florida with just $8.5 million.
This vulnerability is exacerbated by the limited resources small businesses have to invest in comprehensive cybersecurity strategies.
Cloud Hosting: The Emerging Sheild Against Cybersecurity
For California’s small businesses, the transition to cloud hosting is not just a strategic move but a necessity. The scalability of cloud services allows these businesses to adapt their security needs as they grow.
