Submission + - Hackers Focus on Small Business

PreacherTom writes: A study, just released by the Small Business Technology Institute of San Jose and software giant Symantec, shows that hackers are increasingly turning their sights onto small business. According to their results, approximately 70% of small businesses consider information security a high priority, and more than 80% have confidence in their existing protective measures. But 56% of small businesses experienced one or more security incidents in the past 12 months before completing the survey, and many still weren't taking the appropriate steps to prevent them in the future. Almost one-fifth of the small businesses surveyed didn't use virus scanning for e-mail, and more than 60% didn't protect their wireless networks with even the simplest encryption.
