Why is this data important?

An attacker is more likely to target organisations with a large volume of risk signals or a small volume of high-severity risk signals. 

Some small businesses may not think they have anything valuable, but this is often far from the case.

Almost all organisations hold a treasure trove of confidential data, such as employee data or intellectual property. Most also rely on IT systems and software for day-to-day business, which could be exploited through ransomware or hijacked to commit further cybercrime. Cyber attacks frequently result in significant business interruption, legal liabilities, and reputational damage to the organisation affected.
