For Business

Small businesses often make the mistake of thinking they’re too small to be a target, but reality tells a different story. Studies show that:

  • Over 70% of cyber attacks target small businesses
  • 2 out of 3 small- to medium-sized businesses face financial ruin as a result of an incident

Coupled with the 50 distinct state data breach notification laws, small businesses have a difficult patchwork of regulations to navigate in the event of a breach. In response to this, we created SmartIDentity for Business, a 360-degree small business solution including:

  • Expert Attorney Guidance and Council
  • Proactive tools to help businesses enhance their cyber preparedness
  • Breach response solution designed to mitigate damages
  • Fully-managed Breach Victim Recovery
  • Over 10 million businesses and consumers under coverage

With the assistance of SmartIDentity, I was able to regain control of my business’ online identity, and lock-down my personal identity before suffering any known losses. I would highly recommend SmartIDentity. I was not just told how to protect myself and my business, SmartIDentity helped me do it!

“The customer service and support I received when my business experienced a breach was outstanding! My Case Representative was very knowledgeable and stayed in contact with me throughout the entire process. Although our breach event did not require assistance from the preferred data breach law firm nor any type of forensic analysis, Merchants was able to provide a finalized notification letter, sealed and delivered to the impacted group within a week of us noticing that we had experienced a breach. I feel confident and secure with Merchants on my side. Truly an amazing benefit no business owner should be without. Many Thanks!”
