SAN MATEO, CA - MPA Networks, Inc., a leading managed technology services provider (MTSP), is helping small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) equip themselves with the necessary cybersecurity protections that every modern company needs to survive. Over the past, large organizations including Target, Equifax, Yahoo and now, Marriott, are being breached by cyberattacks. While these companies have huge IT budgets and dozens of IT staff to ward off attacks like these, they still have proven vulnerable. SMBs face the same level of cyberattacks and must take the proper precautions to protect their customers’ data as well as their own information from being compromised.
Cybercrime now outstrips all other organized crime combined. As larger enterprises are forced to invest in the strength of their IT infrastructure, via policies and penalties, cybercriminals will only have one place to go, small businesses. The most recent company to be in the news as the result of an attack is Marriott International. According to Time Magazine, "'The hack affects some 500 million guests, and for about 327 million of them, the data included passport numbers, emails and mailing addresses,' Marriott said. Some credit card details may also have been taken.'"
