Why small businesses struggle with cybersecurity best practices
A recent report unveiled that almost 70% of companies have cybersecurity best practices in place but neglect to take the necessary steps for securing their business. The new study by ESET and Kingston Digital that surveyed 500 British business leaders also found that 44% do not even secure devices with anti-virus software, exposing themselves to cyber threats and GDPR fines.

To shift the paradigm, security professionals must work closely with other departments to avoid silos and use the right tools to ensure employee adherence.
