Cybersecurity Checklist for Business

Fraud in mauve

With data breaches and cyberattacks on the rise, it’s never been more important to make sure your small business is in the best position to defend against cybersecurity threats.

Cyberattacks can have devastating consequences for businesses, including financial loss, damage to reputation and even legal ramifications. In fact, according to the 2024 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, small businesses facing a ransomware incident suffered a median loss of $26,000 with $1 million to $2.25 million losses reported in the 95 percent range. To protect against these threats, businesses must implement robust cybersecurity measures.

In the infographic below, you can find a checklist of steps—from providing security training for employees to ensuring software and systems are regularly updated—to help defend your business against cyberattacks. We also recommend consulting with a cybersecurity expert on relevant actions your business should take.
