How vulnerable is your organization to a cyberattack? With the number of cyberattacks continually on the rise, it’s no longer a matter of if your organization will be targeted, but when. According to Accenture’s study, over the past five years, security breaches have increased by 65%.1 These attacks have had devastating effects on a company, such as disruption of business, a damaged business reputation leading to loss of clients, decreased sales and profits, and lawsuits.
The cybercrime industry is an enormous industry that is consistently growing, making every other industry to rethink their cybersecurity. Cybercriminals are becoming more systematic and developing even more sophisticated ways of getting access to sensitive data. Highly driven by the enormous amount of money they would get selling sensitive corporate data and the anonymity that these selling platforms provide, cybercriminals are devoted to investing their money and time in ripping off companies.
A cyberattack can cost you millions in downtime and lost productivity.2 So how exactly do you ensure that your company’s network is protected?
The most significant types of security threats are malware attacks and phishing.
Most small businesses believe that cybercriminals only target large corporations. However, recent reports have shown that SMBs are also increasingly becoming targets of cybercrime. This is because they act as keepers of sensitive data and often act as gateways for larger corporations. They also lack the sophisticated cybersecurity infrastructure that larger firms have. According to PTG, 43% of cyberattacks are directed towards small businesses, and each attack costs an average of $200,000 to recover from.5
It is far less expensive to prevent cyberattacks than it is to recover from one. Cyberattacks may take weeks, months, or even years to recover from fully. With hackers continually coming up with new sophisticated methods to get access to your data, you need to implement cybersecurity controls to prevent these attacks.
The following are six cybersecurity measures that you should implement to protect your business from cyberattacks:
Your IT infrastructure is critical in your day-to-day business operations. It’s vital to ensure that it is adequately protected against cyberattacks.
