Reports estimate that over 90% of all breaches are due to phishing scams or user error that could have easily been prevented if the user knew ahead of time what to look out for and how to remain “clean”. In 2017 alone, cybersecurity and breaches costed small and medium-sized businesses an average of $1,117,509. Most small and medium-sized businesses do not budget for cybersecurity until it is too late.
