The average cost of a data breach to a small business is $38,000, according to a report [PDF] from Internet security firm Kaspersky Lab. And because they usually process lots of customer data and credit card numbers, retailers and store owners tend to be a favorite target of hackers.

If you don’t have $38,000 lying around to deal with the fallout of a breach at your store, don’t worry: there are ways to cut your exposure to breaches. There are even insurance policies that can help you cover the costs if, despite your best efforts, your store gets hacked.
