Gaining customer loyalty and competing with well-known trusted brands when running a business online is a challenge in itself for small business owners, so it is essential that they donít get a reputation as a cybercrime facilitator. As such, it is important for small business owners to invest in the right level of protection so that it is not their own customersí details that are traded online.
