Even as attacks and breaches at small to midsize businesses (SMBs) continue unabated worldwide, these companies still don't consider themselves at high risk from cyberthreats, reports show.

"Cyberattacks are a global phenomenon — and so is the lack of awareness and preparedness by businesses globally," says Dr. Larry Ponemon, chairman and founder of The Ponemon Institute. "Every organization, no matter where they are, no matter their size, must make cybersecurity a top priority."

The fact of the matter is that SMBs don't prioritize cybersecurity. It's to their detriment. Here, Dark Reading examines a recent Ponemon report on the state of cybersecurity at SMBs (done in partnership with Keeper Security), along with several others released over the past few months, to get a picture of SMB insecurity by the numbers.
