Karl runs a construction company and has an employee named Becky who runs the company website. He catches her stealing money from the company, so he fires her and escorts her out. A few days later, the business website is overrun with traffic and customers could not get in, because Becky hacked the system. Karl's business and reputation are at stake. Karl could have turned on Cyber Safety, and allowed the Website Vulnerabilities Scanner to detect places in the website code that a hacker could compromise.
Kathleen owns an HVAC business. One morning, as she is logging into her computer, a popup appears demanding $500,000 to protect her customers' files.

She is worried if she doesn't pay, her customers will sue her and her business won't survive.
