Protecting your business from cyber attacks
Tens of thousands of cyber attacks occur on a daily basis. These attacks include website hacks, data breaches, ransom attacks, phishing, malicious emails and more. Having a sound and secure cybersecurity plan in place is the best way to protect your business, especially with our reliance on smartphones, internet, cloud services, online sales and Internet of things (IoT).
Cybersecurity is the process of protecting and/or recovering computer systems, networks, devices, and programs from any kind of cyber attack. This protection of all types of data from theft and damage is critical to all businesses. Without a cybersecurity system in place, your business cannot defend itself against data breaches and cybercriminals.
If you’re a business owner in this day and age, you’ve likely asked yourself the following questions:
- Who do I call if my business has been affected by a cyber crime or experiences a ransom attack?
- As a preventative step, who do I call to to ensure my business is properly protected against a cyber attack?
- What additional resources should I be looking at?
