Don’t Get Caught Unprepared: Learn the Steps You Can—and Need—to Take to Defend Against AI-Powered Cybercrime

Cybercriminals know something you don’t: 51% of small businesses have reported having zero cybersecurity measures in place, and only 17% reported encrypting sensitive (and valuable) data.  

Which is precisely why small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) are rapidly becoming prime targets for attacks. Last year’s Verizon Data Breach Statistics report found that 46% of all reported cyber breaches impacted businesses with fewer than 1,000 employees, a percentage that keeps ticking up steadily each year.  

You may think your business is small enough to get by, but attacking SMBs pays off—in monetary gains that add up with volume, in valuable data, and in backdoor access to larger vendors and partner companies’ systems.  

Now enter AI.  

Just like AI is enabling tremendous business gains, from automating rapid analysis of immense volumes of data to freeing up resources to focus on more strategic work, cybercriminals are actively using it to aid their attacks.  

AI is powering cybercriminals to launch more sophisticated, convincing fakes, scams, and tools of manipulation, quickly access deep troves of data, scale their attacks rapidly, and keep shifting to evade detection. To begin with.  

The worst thing you can do right now is fail to learn more about the risk AI poses.  

Action, however, begins with knowledge. Which is why we’ve built a Cybersecurity Checklist to Defend Against AI. When you download this checklist, you’ll learn:

  • The best tool you can employ to arm your business against social engineering attacks, such as phishing and deepfakes 
  • How AI can be used in your defense 
  • What makes the most resilient cybersecurity strategy 
  • How you need to be thinking about safeguarding your data—and perhaps most importantly, your customers’ data
