As technology becomes more sophisticated, so too do those determined to hack their way through to your personal information making the act of protecting such information and that of your clients, even more difficult and significantly more important. Cyberattacks have made victims of Equifax, GitHub, BadRabbit and more resulting in a loss of BILLIONS in loss of productivity as well as financial repercussions thereof. And according to the cybersecurity experts, the rate and severity of these attacks will only continue to spiral out of control. Online Trust Alliance stated that 2017 was the harshest year yet for data breaches and cyber incidents, with the gigantic increase in ransomware leading to close on double the number (160 000) of cyberattacks in 2016 (82 000).
Small and medium, start up and entrepreneurial business owners must wonder how soon their own data and information will be accessed and destroyed or sold for profit. And you can’t be blamed for thinking that way. Even though the incidents of cyberattacks has been lavishly reported through the media, it is often surprising to find out that companies are not taking this threat as seriously as they should. Where in a matter of milliseconds, everything that your business operates on a daily basis on, can vanish before your eyes. And recovery will certainly cost you, if it is even at all possible to recover the information which you have lost.
