The first threat facing organizations is phishing. Phishing is essentially using fake links to lure users into offering up sensitive information, by posing as an authority. Hackers can embed malicious links into emails,attachments or images, which usually lead to another page that requests the sensitive information, which will later be used against the user. One of the most creative ways hackers have found to attack SMBs is to call in and impersonate IT staff or Network Administrators, asking for specific information off the employee's computer to resolve a potential "virus". The employee will usually comply and supply the information, giving the hacker the exact keys they need to infiltrate the system.

Mobile Security

The next area of concern is mobile security. As web traffic continues to migrate from PC to mobile, hackers have followed suit by redirecting their efforts to mobile attacks, as well. At an organization, whereby users are encouraged to BYOD (bring-your own-device) to the network, this increases the exposure for network attack exponentially. SMBs need to be on the lookout for attacks from third-party apps, mobile malware, and unsecured public Wi-Fi locations.

For example, employees will use their phone at an unsecured Wi-Fi hotspot to work but they won't realize that the network is rigged to enable hackers with easy access to sensitive apps, data, and information on any phones connected to that particular unsecured Wi-Fi hotspot. In many cases, users will be attacked without even realizing that the attack has happened.


The last area for an SMB to monitor is malvertising. This threat is where hackers embed malware within advertisements, landing pages, or even directly on reputable websites. Sites that offer advertising on a massive scale, such as Facebook, have a tough time regulating online security throughout the buying process. Facebook can do its best to ensure that the links on Facebook aren't malicious; however, they have no access to monitoring the pages that those advertisements lead to, once the user has left Facebook. Malvertisers can embed code on an advertisement which leads to a dummy checkout page or a fake application page, which phishes all of the sensitive information that the hacker needs to launch an attack.
