According to a nationwide study of small businesses by a digital security firm and the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), 83 percent of small businesses have no formal cyber security plan, while 69 percent lack even an informal one. At the same time, 71 percent are dependent on the internet for daily operations, yet almost half believe data hacks are isolated incidents that won’t have an impact on their business.
