Secure Commerce: Data Security Essentials Every Small Business Should Know

Small businesses help drive the U.S. economy, but because of their size they are also appealing cyber targets. The reality is that small businesses represent more than 90 percent of all the merchant data breach compromises that Visa investigates. As part of National Cyber Security Awareness month, Visa hosted a webinar on small merchant data security to help arm merchants with the knowledge they need to better protect themselves from online and other threats. In this webinar, we covered data compromise trends and simple strategies small businesses can employ to help protect their data. Just like insurance, financing and a well-trained staff, data security is essential to helping your business grow and succeed.
