SMBs Not Worried About Security Attacks: McAfee

VNUnet

A majority of SMBs think they're not showing up on hackers' radar screens, according to a new report from McAfee.Among the findings from the Santa Clara, Calif.-based security software maker, which surveyed 500 IT decision makers: 44 percent of SMBs believe cybercrime is only an issue for large companies; 52 percent believe they're not well-known enough for hackers to target; and 46 percent believe they wouldn't be a source of profit for cybercriminals.

The study also found 42 percent of SMBs spend an hour or less per week on security management -- though 21 percent acknowledged that an attack could put them out of business. A whopping 88 percent of SMB respondents think their hardware and software provide adequate protection, though 43 percent stick with their default settings.

One-quarter of those who said they have been attacked needed at least a week to recover, according to the McAfee report.VNUnet
