Small Business Solution: LA Times on Hacking Attacks

Last Tuesday, May 22, the LA Times ran a special section on Small Business Solutions.

A column on data protection by Alana Semuels, "Big firms aren't only ones hit by system hackers. Inadequately protecting sensitive information can invite intruders," should be a wake-up call for any small business owner who doesn't understand the nature of the threats to his company's technology systems.

Semuels scores many good points, including parts on legal requirements on data protection and the true source of most company IT hassles: "70 % of all acts of malfeasance that affect small business can be attributed to an internal problem."
