Cybercrime is an ever-present threat to modern businesses, regardless of the industry. Without current and varied security measures, malware and successful hacks can compromise your customers’ and employees’ sensitive data and harm your systems, resulting in costly downtime and liability.
If you think that your business won’t attract hackers, think again. Cyber criminals target smaller companies specifically because of their apparent lack of IT security measures.
Small to medium-sized businesses like yours need to think past the size of their organization and realize that everyone is at risk for cyber-attacks. Without the right knowledge, tools and technology to prevent hackers from stealing your information, your business is left prone to a major data breach.
A recently popular type of malware is the “ransomware” variety, which encrypts a victim’s files (making them unreadable) and only offers the key to recover them after a ransom has been paid. The unfortunate reality is that when it comes to your business’ vulnerability to ransomware and other types of malware, it’s not a matter of IF, it’s a matter of WHEN. There are simply too many varieties of ransomware to guarantee total safety for your business.
IT security can be a complicated and scary subject when it comes to advanced cybercrime tactics such as ransomware. Most business owners cannot confidently claim that their business’s network is secure. Can you?
