RSM US MMBI Cybersecurity Special Report, May 2019

Middle market among the most vulnerable to cyber attacks

WHITE PAPER  | 

Middle market leaders increasingly recognize the heightened risk of cyber threats and data breaches that are continuing to capture headlines, but fail to realize they are prime targets for cyber attacks. That’s according to results from the RSM US Middle Market Business Index (MMBI) Cybersecurity Special Report released from RSM US, in partnership with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

The report found that 15 percent of middle market executives indicated that their companies experienced a data breach in the last year, up from 13 percent in 2018 and a significant jump from 5 percent just four years ago. Additionally, more than half (55 percent) of respondents believe that an attempt to illegally access their company’s data or systems is likely in 2019, an increase from 47 percent in 2018. Larger middle market organizations continue to be most at risk for cybercrime, as many have high volumes of valuable data but don’t have the robust security resources of their large-cap peers, making them exceedingly attractive to cybercriminals.
