Why Mid-Market Enterprises are Becoming Top Targets for Cyber Criminals (and What They Can Do to Prevent It)
In the last few years, many large businesses have overhauled their approach to cyber security. The rise of remote working forced them to bring forward long-planned upgrades to both security technology and processes, resulting in far better data security across the board.
On paper it seems like very good news, but it isn’t necessarily for everyone. Why? Because the majority of cyber criminals are opportunists looking for the quickest and easiest way to make the maximum amount of money possible from victims. Consequently, they tend to target larger businesses that have more assets for exploitation. However, as these large businesses continue to shore up their cyber defences, cyber criminals have started looking elsewhere for easier targets, and many of them are turning their attention to lesser protected mid-market enterprises instead.
