Spotty youths with laptops or activists are not the big threat to small business; the threat to you is about your banking and finance details, your customers' details, data and their payment information. The bad guys are interested in details that can be converted to cash - and that means competitively valuable information like sales reports and new business leads - the cost to trust and reputation also have to be considered.
