How often has this happened to you. You run a SMB and are about to close a really big busines deal. There is just one thing, before your customer will sign off, you have to address your company’s cyber security. They want you to fill out their questionnaire before you can move forward.
For many SMBs, the direct tie between cyber security and revenue is a pain point. Maybe your business has the most basic cyber security or none. You are feeling like you don’t even know how to begin answering these questions. And if you can’t fill out that questionnaire in a way that satisfies your customer’s cyber security compliance obligations, you can kiss that sale goodbye. If your business’ cyber security posture is lacking, you may begin to find yourself losing out on deals.
