Security advice sounds a little crazy. You don’t really know what would actually help, or even how much you should care. But really bad things do happen all the time to real people, and people are losing more and more every year to internet criminals.
Have you ever lost your business overnight?
It happens more often than you think. And the loss is never immediate. Your business might continue for another year, but one bad decision or event can turn a company's future from success and growth to circling the drain.
One of the easiest ways to suddenly lose your business is from computer crime. Despite what CNN tells you, it's almost never because of evil Russian hackers. It happens in boring ways - the same scams as always, but now with computers.
In 2015, Ubiquiti, a successful company with enthusiastic customers lost $46 million because someone in their finance department got duped into sending it to the wrong bank account. It's even more common now.
