Coronet, the leader in small business cybersecurity, today announced the release of Cybersecurity in the City: Where Small Businesses Are Most Vulnerable to Attack, its second annual report analyzing the threats and vulnerabilities to small and mid-market businesses within the country's 50 largest cities.

In addition, Salt Lake CitySt. Louis and Seattle-Tacoma ranked as the least vulnerable cities to cyberattack. Cybersecurity in the City: Where Small Businesses Are Most Vulnerable to Attack, is the first report issued by Coronet since it revealed America's most cyber insecure airports in the summer of 2018.

To generate this report, Coronet collected and analyzed data from:

  • One million endpoints spanning all operating systems
  • 24 million networks (public and private)
  • 320,000 SaaS accounts (Dropbox, Box, Slack and Salesforce)
  • 270,000 Gmail and Office 365 email accounts

The data, which was collected and analyzed over the previous 12 months, originated from over 93 million security events that were automatically mitigated by Coronet. In total, each event represented vulnerabilities that could be exploited by adversaries to gain access to cloud data, steal data or damage it.
