What is Cybersecurity?
Cybersecurity also referred to as information technology security or network security is a body of technologies, processes, and practices designed to protect computers, networks, software, programs, and valuable data from unintended or unauthorized access, attacks, change, or destruction. It is the act of protecting any system, network, program, or infrastructure from cyberattacks.
No one device or piece of software can protect your business from modern cyber attack. It takes a complete program to maximize cybersecurity.
The goal of Cybersecurity is to develop preventative methods to protect data on your system from being stolen, compromised, or attacked in some way. It requires an understanding of potential information threats, such as viruses and other malicious code. Cybersecurity strategies include identity management, risk management, and incident management.
Partnering with a Managed Services Provider (MSP) that focuses on IT security can bolster your cybersecurity defenses. This is especially true when it comes to end-user error. All the tools and solutions in the world won’t protect your business from every attack. Human error is still highly dangerous, and many employees grow complacent at some point as they fail to follow best practices. That is why having a multilayered security approach is so critical in protecting your data.
When your business falls victim to a cyberattack, you lose more than your data—
you also lose your credibility.
3 Facts on Cybersecurity
More than half of all cyberattacks are targeted at small businesses
These breaches frequently cost over $100k. For businesses of any size, especially small businesses, a sum of that amount is detrimental to proper functioning and stability.
Nearly ¼ of those cyberattacks force a suspension of operations
If your operations are suspended, your business cannot provide service to customers, employees, and partners. Most small businesses never recover from this.
The most common cyberattacks can easily trick an open system or employee
Cyberattacks are becoming smarter, disguising themselves so well that any employee or open system can be fooled. Don’t leave your infrastructure at risk.
Why is Cybersecurity Important for your business?
Cybersecurity is complicated, no longer can you install it and forget it. Your firewall is the entry point to your entire business. If you aren’t checking to make sure the “door is locked” you could be vulnerable. Network outages, data compromised by hackers, computer viruses and other incidents affect our lives in ways that range from inconvenient to life-threatening. As the number of mobile users, digital applications and data networks increase, so do the opportunities for exploitation. Know the different types of Cyber Attacks.
Small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are the prime target for attackers because they tend to be easier targets. They’re often less secure and unprepared for an attack.
Think about burglars that go after houses where they know no one is home. With more cybercrime automation and the rise of hacking kits, the cost and time it takes to launch a successful attack have decreased, increasing the number of cyber-attacks executed. Not to mention the work from home model that many business have developed, it is even more important to have a solid cyber security plan. Read here about some remote work cybersecurity risks and how to prevent them.
