The PIA Partnership Presents: Cyber 101

Myth: Hackers and cyber criminals generally target large businesses because that is where they profit most.
Fact:  62 percent of cyber-attacks target small-and mid-sized businesses

The PIA Partnership has created this cyber education resource to help independent agents understand cyber risks so that they can better protect their agencies and their clients' businesses. We believe that small businesses have seven primary cyber exposures:

  1. PIAPartnershipLogoOneLine_300x62.jpgFraudulent Funds Transfers
  2. Extortion / Ransomware
  3. Social Engineering
  4. Business Interruption
  5. Data Breach/Privacy
  6. Network Security
  7. Website Media Liability
