Around the holidays, “cyber” is often associated with shopping. Seventy-eight million Americans were expected to make online purchases Cyber Monday. While you’re filling your cart, businesses are guarding against cyberattacks.
The U.S. Chamber urges companies to adopt internet security practices to reduce network weaknesses and make a hacker’s job difficult. There isn’t a silver bullet to perfect security, but it doesn’t have to be intimidating for business owners.

Planning ahead can protect businesses, consumers and national security.
