How to Know if Hackers Have Stolen Your Passwords

Hacker stealing password and username

Hackers could be stealing your passwords right now, and chances are, you’d never know until it was too late. When they’d already breached your network, stolen files, or locked you out of your accounts.

Unfortunately, most small businesses are unaware and unprepared for cyberattacks. The average time to identify a data breach is 287 days (that’s more than 9 months!) What’s worse–your employees are getting tricked into GIVING access to the criminals through increasingly clever scams and phishing attacks. In fact, 90% of security breaches are unintentional and caused by human error.
