Study: Indy Businesses Vulnerable to Cybersecurity Risks
INDIANAPOLIS - A New York-based cybersecurity firm claims Indianapolis is the ninth most vulnerable city in the U.S. for small and midsize business data security, a three-spot decline from 2018.
Coronet bases its pronouncement on a year’s worth of research, analyzing network, device, cloud app and email threats in the top 50 metro areas in the U.S.
The cybersecurity company says it researched 24 million networks, 320,000 software-as-a-service (SaaS) accounts, such as Dropbox and Slack, and 270,000 Gmail accounts.
Analyzing Indianapolis cybersecurity pitfalls, Coronet says 7% of users access cloud apps from devices with no password, almost 50% higher than the national average.
