In an article published in the Autumn 2015 edition of Cyber Security Review, Luis Aguilar, a commissioner of the Securities and Exchange Commission, warned small and medium-sized firms to be equally vigilant against cyber threats as larger firms. This is because, said Mr. Augilar, “small and midsize businesses are not just targets of cybercrime, they are its principal target.” According to Mr. Aguilar, smaller businesses are an attractive target for cybercriminals for one principal reason: smaller businesses “face precisely the same threat landscape that confronts larger organizations, but must do so with far fewer resources.”
