Welcome to DCC Cyber, a cybersecurity resource for freelancers, solo practitioners, lean startups, and other small businesses. If you’re living the 1099 life, this is your place.
Why Should Freelancers Get Cybersecure?
Because professionals working without technical support make an easy target. With the hardening of large corporate and government targets, the consultants and other small business contractors who provide professional services for these entities (that would be you!) have increasingly become attractive points of access for those systems . . . and become targets themselves.
Because loss of reputation and other ramifications of a cyberattack can ruin your business. Nearly half of small- and mid-sized businesses experienced a data breach last year–with the number of small businesses affected increasing by 6%. Sixty percent of small businesses are out of business within 6 months of a cyberattack. Of those breached, 25% relied on security measures designed for use by individuals, not businesses (read more here).
