 A Guide for Small- and Medium-Sized Businesses to Identify and Prepare for Digital Threats 

NEW YORK (June 15, 2022) — Due to limited resources and security infrastructures, cybercriminals often consider small- to medium-sized businesses more attractive targets, according to the newly published RIMS Executive Report “Getting Started on Cybersecurity.”

Authored by members of RIMS International Council, the report explores the latest trends in cyberattacks against small- to medium-sized businesses, as well as the following five areas of consideration that allow businesses to more effectively address, mitigate and prevent cyber-related incidents:

1.     Identifying Important Information

2.     Scenario Planning

3.     Proactive Response Planning

4.     Employee Policies and Guidelines

5.     Monitoring and Building Cyber Support Teams

“As the world has made dynamic strides in digitizing many strategies and process, we have in turn created a much larger attack surface for cybercriminals,” according to the report.  “With the increased proliferation of cyberattacks every year, it is of paramount importance that every small- and medium-sized business identifies and better understands their threat profile and vulnerabilities.”
 

The “Getting Started on Cybersecurity” report, located in RIMS Risk Knowledge library, is available to members only for the first 60-days.
