Cyber-attacks are a constant threat – a fact of life; a harsh reality of doing business in 2019. And when they happen, there is a price to pay.
But the cost to company reputation (lost customers, lost trust) is immeasurable. And what happens if you are attacked and your critical systems go down? How long can you afford to have your business disrupted?
It’s not a question of IF you’ll be threatened…but WHEN. Once you’re threatened, are you protected?
According to the Online Trust Alliance (OTA), 93% of all breaches could have been prevented in the past year.
And when these attacks happen, you will be asked: “What did you do to minimize the impact of the attack on your business and on your customers?”
How will you reply when you are asked what steps you took to minimize the impact of breaches? Will your answer be that you did nothing? Did you incorporate standards and best practices for cybersecurity? Do you really know WHAT you did? Did you take the right steps to avoid those breaches?
