However, it doesn’t matter the size of your business or the size of your personal bank account. As long as you have data to steal, then you’re susceptible to a cyber attack.
In other news, the Missouri Department of Social Services was also hit with a cyber attack. The Missouri Department of Social Services sent out letters notifying their clients their information may have been accessed due to an online security incident. They are still investigating the incident.
