In this Slideshare, McAfee provides content from joint survey with Office Depot, Inc. that revealed surprising security misconceptions among small and medium-sized business (SMB) owners. More than 1,000 SMBs participated in the Office Depot Small Business Index survey last month, and a super-majority (66 percent) felt confident that their data and devices are secure and safe from hackers, with 77 percent responding that they haven’t been hacked. The results are at odds with industry research that has revealed these same businesses are prime targets of complex and evolving cyber threats.
