“I don’t have anything worth hacking.”

First, don’t be so hard on yourself. Find a mirror, look at yourself in it, and repeat after me: I’m good enough. I’m smart enough. And, doggone it, people like me.

Second, and more importantly, whether you think you have anything worth hacking is irrelevant. A hacker can’t make that determination until after he or she has hacked into your system and taken whatever he or she wants.

So, the question isn’t whether you have anything worth hacking or not. The question is: do hackers think you have anything worth hacking? And if you have credit card numbers, or personal information, or anything else that can be ransomed or sold off, then yes, they do.

Hacking statistics:

  • In the past 12 months, hackers have breached half of all small businesses in the United States, according to one report.
  • Another report revealed that 60% of small businesses close within six months of being attacked because they lack the resources to manage and recover from a breach.
