Protect SMEs - Threats to operations and credibility.

In today's dynamic business world, Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) play a crucial role in the economic fabric. However, despite their importance, these organizations often operate with limited resources, especially regarding cybersecurity. This factor places them vulnerable to security risks that can seriously affect their operations and credibility.

Let's look at these examples:

  • Phishing: One of the most common methods cybercriminals use to attack SMBs involves sending fraudulent emails that appear to come from trusted sources. A real-life example occurred with a small accounting firm in Lisbon, where an employee inadvertently provided confidential client information by responding to a phishing email that appeared to be from a well-known vendor.

  • Ransomware: This type of attack has been particularly devastating for SMEs. For example, a graphic design company in Porto had its systems blocked by ransomware, forcing it to pay a considerable ransom to regain access to its own work files and customer data.

  • Zero-Day Attacks: Attacks that exploit vulnerabilities unknown to software manufacturers can be especially problematic for SMBs that do not have the means to implement security patches quickly. One high-profile case involved a retail SME in the Algarve, which was compromised through a zero-day vulnerability in popular point-of-sale software, resulting in substantial losses of sensitive financial data.
