If you’re a small business owner, and you are receiving Facebook messages about a business grant you have won, you might be the target of a cyber scam. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) wants to make sure you do not fall victim to a cyber scam.

FTC launched a new site designed to help small businesses protect themselves from cyberattacks who are often easy targets because they don’t have the financial resources to constantly monitor their networks, according to FTC.

The percentage of spear-phishing attempts directed at small businesses rose from 18 percent in 2011 to 43 percent in 2015, according to Symantec’s threat report.
