Windows 7: Only 36% of small firms apply security patches

Small businesses are under constant attack from malware, scams and online fraud.

They are not only losing money directly to fraud, but also in costs associated with maintaining security. Small businesses are simply woefully under-prepared to keep their assets safe. Despite reorganisation and redirected priorities, the police can still do little to help.

What I don't understand is why in the year of 2013 even small businesses without a IT Department won't keep their security and systems updated. By now they should know that security is a major concern.
Thank you A Guy for your great post on security.

Thanks for the post Bill, I'm following Naked Security on Twitter, as well as, a few other security blogs and two NT debugging blogs. I'm quite interested in the security side of Windows, and want to try and learn more about it.
