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.
