Why Cybersecurity is More Important Than Ever

Many people believe that only larger companies need to worry about cybersecurity when that’s far from being the truth. Hackers are also targeting smaller companies due to the fact that they are more vulnerable. Here are a few reasons why cybersecurity is more important than ever, regardless of your company’s size.

Damage
It’s estimated that in the United States over 30,000 hacks take place every day. An excellent example of this is ransomware, whereby a hacker can block someone from accessing a system and demand money to have the ransomware removed. Security must be put in place before the ransomware can be put on the system.

Opportunity for Hackers
We all know that cloud-based services are terrific for businesses, allowing for more convenient file sharing and access. This is why being aware of your security is more critical than ever. Your sensitive information needs to be properly protected so that only the people who should have the information can obtain it.

Backup and Data Recovery
Another point not to be ignored is backup and data recovery. Think of it like this – if a ransomware threat hits you, it is possible to bypass it and not lose crucial data. This will curtail any consequence and you won’t lose any money paying a ransom. Note: we recommend not paying any money to a hacker. This could result in you getting targeted again.

Almost everything is done through the internet
You name it, just about everything is done through the world wide web. Even school nowadays is being conducted through the internet. And with the pandemic amongst us, most businesses are doing meetings and file transfers through the internet as well. So, it’s safe to say that we are now more vulnerable than ever. Sensitive information in email inboxes such as credit card statements and purchases are just a part of what’s contained there. As a business owner, investing in cybersecurity is the first thing you should do if you’re planning to take your work on the internet, which just happens to be the best way of expanding and connecting with the world.
