Discussion points:

  • Isn’t my business too small to have to worry about cybersecurity?

  • Can’t I just pay the ransom or demands if I get hit?

  • I haven’t been hit in (X number of years business has been open), do I really need to worry about it now?

  • What are some practical and lower cost things I can do RIGHT now in my business to help protect it from a cyberattack?

  • How can I just stop all cyberattacks?

  • Is it really a big deal if an employee or myself clicks on an email?  Isn’t this getting a little blow out of proportion?

  • Won’t cybersecurity insurance just cover everything?

  • I backup, so I am all set… right?

  • If I am in or move totally to the cloud, then I am safe, right? Think again!
