Protect Your Business Data From Cyberattacks

Cybercriminals are continually developing new ways to access your systems and data, and too many businesses make their job too easy. Some organisations fail to take even the most basic security measures.

The ‘Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2018’ stated over four in ten businesses (43%) have experienced cybersecurity breaches or attacks in the last 12 months, which rises to seven in ten (72%) among large companies.  Data breaches cost UK organisations an average of £2.48 million a year.

Servers, padlocks open and closed

It can take a cybercriminal a matter of minutes or even seconds to attack your systems and extract your most valuable asset – your business data.  In fact, they have as much time as they need as it can take an organisation weeks or even months to uncover a security breach.

Ransomware is easy to deploy and very effective – cybercriminals can inflict maximum damage if they encrypt your file server or database and if you haven’t backed up your data they can take your business offline.

Your business has responsibilities under GDPR, which means that you are now required to protect the personal information that your organisation collects and uses. This includes the requirement to have appropriate security in place to prevent it from being accidentally or deliberately compromised. Breaching data protection legislation could lead to a fine of up to £500,000, and if inadequate security contributes to high profile incidents of data loss or theft, the damage of your business and personal reputation could be irretrievable.
