Trend Micro just recently released an excellent 8 page eBook entitled “Five Things Every Small Business Should Know About Web Threats and Cybercrimes.”

In this eBook Trend Micro demonstrates the many threats that small business face. Many think that cybercrimes and threats are only in movies but the reality is they happen every day to normal everyday ordinary businesses.

Trend Micro states, “For cybercriminals,  no business is too small to exploit. However, small business owners still have this mindset  that  only multinational organizations are targeted by cybercriminals. They continue believing that  since they’re  small players, they’re  safe. Because of this, these business owners  take cybercriminal threats and security  for granted, making  their  small businesses ripe  for the picking.”
