Beware: Small Businesses Are at a Higher Risk of Data Breaches

The cost of a data breach has risen 12% over the past five years, costing almost $4 million on average.

Not only does the data breach itself cost money, the increased regulation and resolution following a breach factor into the increasing cost of reparation.

And small businesses suffer more, as the per-employee costs of a breach are higher for businesses with less people:

  • $204 —The per-employee breach-related costs for organizations with more than 25,000 employees
  • $3,533 —The per-employee breach-related costs for organizations with between 500 and 1,000 employees1

This can hamper the financial recovery of small businesses.
