2022 Comcast Business Small Business Cybersecurity Report

Oct 6, 2022, 15:38 PM by qaisar khalifa
This new annual report offers a window into what threats small businesses may face this year.

The security landscape remains challenging. In 2022, we have seen a number of high-profile cyberattacks against organizations such as Nvidia, News Corp, Microsoft, Samsung, and the Red Cross. While attacks against large organizations usually grab headlines, SMBs also face cybersecurity risks and attacks.

Attackers don’t discriminate by size. Like their larger counterparts, SMBs have valuable data and financial resources that threat actors often target. Besides, SMBs far outnumber large organizations and often lack sufficient cybersecurity measures and resources to manage their risk. Furthermore, attackers seem to target SMBs more often than enterprises; a recent report estimates that users at companies with fewer than 100 employees are three times more likely to experience a cyberattack.

This first annual Small Business Cybersecurity Report reviews anonymized threat data gathered from our Comcast Business SecurityEdge™ service from July 2021 to June 2022, as well as security insights from our partner Akamai. The report offers a window into threats our small and medium-sized business (SMB) customers face on a daily basis and how our service helps protect them from these cyberthreats.
