Cybersecurity and data protection are now national security issues impacting all U.S. businesses, no matter the size. China and other nation-states, as well as organized and disorganized criminals, are stealing intellectual capital, personal and business information, and creating havoc in business environments. No one is immune, and approximately 60% of small businesses that are hacked never recover. It is time to take this seriously and protect everything valuable to us and our nation. We are at war, act like it.

Large Organizations are Small Organizations Too

Large public and private organizations are comprised of big, medium and small organizational components. Sharing a common understanding and unified messaging is critical to delivering business/mission value and security. 

Small and mid-size businesses are the largest group of employers. Thinking of large organizations separately from this group ignores very important opportunities to increase business value and security because they are all connected and interdependent.

RightExposure helps small businesses and large businesses
