“You know what I like about people? Their dogs.”
-Jarod Kintz, The Days of Yay Are Here! Wake Me Up When They’re Gone.
While having lunch with a friend a few years ago, he asked me if I had heard about the latest news. There was a massive data loss at a large Indian multinational software company. The personal information of thousands of customers had been stolen from the company’s servers. This private information could be used for identity theft or sold to the highest bidder on the dark web, where it would likely find its way to criminal organizations in other countries who would use it to defraud millions of people of their hard-earned money. To make matters worse, the same multinational software company was responsible for developing cybersecurity apps that would protect users’ data from hackers and cybercriminals.
So why is network security so crucial in today’s digital age? Read on to learn why you should invest in cybersecurity NOW before it’s too late!
Malicious cyberattacks are on the rise.
According to a recent study by ESET, nearly half (47%) of all businesses have been the victim of a cyberattack in recent years.
While there are many reasons why companies should invest in cybersecurity, this is especially true for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs and SMBs). SMBs have fewer resources than their larger counterparts, which means they are more likely to be targeted by cybercriminals looking for quick payoffs with minimal effort.
A security breach can affect your reputation and customer relationships.
A security breach can affect your reputation and relationships with customers. It can also affect your bottom line because customers are more likely to trust secure companies.
A data security breach is costly – but it does not have to be! There are plenty of precautions companies can take to protect their data while ensuring customer privacy and satisfaction at the same time.
Lack of awareness and understanding of cybersecurity is costing businesses much more than they think.
Cybersecurity is a complex issue, but it’s also one that affects us all. We all have information stored in cyberspace, whether it’s our data or intellectual property. In this digital age, cybersecurity has become even more crucial than ever before.
Lack of awareness and understanding of cybersecurity is costing companies a lot more than they think. The average cost of a data breach is $22 million according to research by IBM- but some estimates range from $100 billion to $500 billion per year! These figures illustrate just how expensive mismanagement can be when it comes to protecting your company’s data and assets.
So what should businesses do? Investing in cybersecurity services can help you avoid these costs and keep everyone safe from potential cyberattacks at both the hardware and software levels.
