Cybersecurity for Small- to Medium-Sized Businesses: 10 Steps to Success

Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are learning the hard way that they are indeed prime targets for cyber attackers. But many enterprise security tools and practices don’t work for SMBs, which have neither the budget nor the skills to operate their own IT security department.

In this Dark Reading webinar, a top expert offers some tips and recommendations for securing the smaller enterprise, and for implementing simple, affordable tools and best practices that make sense for the resource-limited SMB (and maybe even resource-limited large enterprises).
