"Business identity theft is a very real concern in today's marketplace because, from a criminal's perspective, it is significantly more cost-effective to steal business identities than consumer identities," said Steve Cox, BBB spokesperson. "Small businesses can be especially easy targets because they may not be as adept or well-equipped to protect sensitive information as larger companies that can afford to hire dedicated staff to ensure oversight and security."
