TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Local business owners took part in a cyber-crime forum today to find out how to keep themselves safe from hackers.

Police said small businesses are increasingly being targeted by cyber criminals; They have fewer safeguards and fewer people to keep an eye on their systems.

"It's not like going in and trying to rob a bank -- which bank robberies are down over 50 percent over the last decade, by the way, because everything is going cyber now," cyber crime expert, Michael Nordstrom, said. "You don't have to get a million dollars at a pop. You get ten dollars at a pop, 100,000 times because you can get it globally."

Cyber criminals will often target small businesses by stealing smaller amounts that can go undetected.
