The National Cyber Security Alliance has conducted a new study with Visa to study small business’ cyber security practices and attitudes, polling nearly 1000 small businesses. The results show that small businesses don't consider cyber security as much of a risk as they should.
Interesting results from the survey:
This report is in line with a similar study in 2008 which showed that small businesses were in denial about security. AVG also released a small business survey this month [PDF] showing that one in seven small businesses polled in the U.S. and the U.K. have no Internet security software or system in place at all.
