When we think cybersecurity, we tend to think big data breaches like Target or your parents setting their passwords as “password”. We skip over the the prime target for many attacks – small businesses.

Attacks against SMBs make up almost half of all cyber crime, and has seen gigantic spikes with the pandemic in 2020. These attacks, successful or not, can lead to exorbitant costs on small companies in the hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars.

CEO Brian Fritton co-founded Havoc Shield with these climbing cyber crime rates in mind as a vulnerability small businesses have to plan and budget for and not just react to. Brian joins the show to talk about how Havoc Shield protects businesses from plan to proof, raising a recent round of funding, working on security for political campaigns and taking our digital lives as seriously as attackers do.
