IT Security from Government Technology: “U.S. House Cybersecurity Bill Targets Small-Business Knowledge Gap”

U.S. House Cybersecurity Bill Targets Small-Business Knowledge Gap

(TNS) — PANAMA CITY, Fla. — Cybersecurity can be a big problem for small businesses.

Just ask Fazio Mechanical Services, the mid-sized HVAC company that was hacked leading to the 2013 Target hack that compromised millions of credit cards.

“The hackers went into that small business with a phishing scam, someone clicking on something they shouldn’t have clicked on, and as they began to move through the system they found this doorway to Target and produced a hack that affected more than 20 million people,” said Guy Garrett, an associate professor of cybersecurity at Gulf Coast State College.
