Cyber ​​attacks against small businesses increased between 2020 and 2021.

Things were relatively slow when Elana Graham started selling cybersecurity software to small businesses five years ago.

Now, demand is booming with the rapid proliferation of remote work, which leaves these companies vulnerable to attack.

Graham’s company’s turnover tripled reached an all-time high since the beginning of the year.

“It was total denial. ‘This is not going to happen to me. We are too small’. That was the message I heard overwhelmingly five years ago,” says Graham, co-founder of Canada-based CYDEF. “But yes, it happens,” he says.
