Small Merchants at Increased Risk of Data Theft

Interesting article about how small businesses are the target of the majority of attacks on payment systems.

Comes complete with an InfoGraphic full of factoids such as:

  • the ratio of small merchants to large merchants
  • the %age of merchants who believe there is “no to little chance that they could be the victim of a data breach”.
  • call to action for small merchants.

Although the article quotes the SSC as their data source, the SSC SMB flyer uses slightly different stats (from the 2012 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report).
