In fact, the threats and vulnerabilities we’re up against don’t discriminate. Size doesn’t matter. Here’s a good read on this if you’re trying to find some ammo to get management on your side and show that security affects all businesses – large and small.
Here’s another story about how credit card thieves are targeting small businesses.
Oh, one more thing – one of the greatest bits of ammo is the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse Chronology of Data Breaches. There’s new stuff there seemingly every day. You can’t read through it without shaking your head. There’s just no excuse. Hey, at least you can fix ignorance.

“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
