Expert say Cyber Crime is likely to increase in 2013

How to protect your Small Business?

Awareness is often lacking in protecting small business computers from cyber criminals. From fast food chains to local government agencies, including major corporations it seems no one is immune when it comes to cyber crimes and hacking. Experts predict we will see a lot more of it in 2013. Channel 9 learned about some of the new methods that are being used to strike and the potential targets. The Tin Kitchen Food truck marked its one-year anniversary on Jan. 17 by launching a new website. But small businesses like the Tin Kitchen may be increasingly targeted by cyber criminals and hackers in 2013. Special Agent Colleen Moss with the FBI's Cyber Crimes Task Force explained one of the main reasons why "Smaller businesses typically don't have the money to employ a full-time IT person," she said. This means they are less likely to check for technology upgrades, virus protection updates or any malicious software on a daily basis, making them an easy target for hackers.
