RSM 2020 Cybersecurity Special Report
Middle market companies have increasingly become the primary target for cybercriminals, with data security incidents rising each year. Attackers have realized that large organizations have invested heavily in security measures, and the success rate does not often justify the effort. However, hackers see the middle market as big enough to yield significant results and appreciate not having to contend with the mature controls of larger organizations. In fact, 18% of middle market executives shared that their company experienced a data breach in the last year, over three times the percentage from just six years ago.
In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has increased the complexity of cybersecurity challenges for the middle market. As the new distributed workforce has become even more dependent on the internet to remain productive, hackers are taking advantage of the crisis by unleashing a variety of attacks that larger organizations are often better equipped to address. As companies build their new processes and procedures to respond to the pandemic, many expect to see a spike in security breaches over the next several months
