Consider how much of your business operations rely on computers - you store your business and customer data digitally, including financial accounts, personal information, and other specifics. Unfortunately, while this data is clearly invaluable to your business, do you know who else would find your data valuable?
Cybercriminals, that’s who.
Cybersecurity is the approach that businesses take to ensure that their data is protected against theft, breaches, or other threats by cybercriminals and user error, leveraging a variety of solutions and practices to accomplish this goal.
What Does This Mean for Your Business?
How would you respond if a business you entrusted your data to had betrayed that trust and neglected to protect it?
Probably not well, and the same goes for everyone whose data you possess. They would feel the same way if you failed to protect their data. Allowing a cybersecurity incident to happen, either through neglect, negligence, or naiveté, will only bring you trouble. For instance, you will likely have to deal with:
- Upset clients and customers
- Time lost notifying those affected
- Regulatory backlash
- Severe reputation damage
- Financial repercussions and reparations
- Bad press
Obviously, none of these outcomes are good, and should be avoided.
