Digitization is the most important and probably most discussed topic for companies today. Medium-sized companies, in particular, are increasingly trying to set themselves apart from the competition with outstanding digital solutions. However, the high digital potential does not come without a certain risk.
The more digital presence a company has, the greater the potential attack surface for
hackers and cybercriminals. As a result, many small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) wonder why they are the target of a hacker attack. Even though large companies have larger volumes of data, hackers are increasingly targeting SMBs.
In the „State of Cyber Security in Small & Medium-Sized Businesses“ report by the Ponemon Institute, 66% of the companies attacked in 2019 were SMEs.
