Why Cyber Security Matters
In today’s internet-facing world, no company can ever be 100% safe from a cyber attack. Most attacks are automated and indiscriminate. Hackers don’t target any businesses in particular. Instead, they hunt down weaknesses in technology and exploit them. If attacked, your business risks losing valuable assets and damaging its reputation. Then there are the costs of recovering from an attack and any fines for compromising or losing sensitive data.
Cyber security works best with an approach that covers several layers of protection, factoring in all the elements you need to keep safe. By educating your people on how they can maintain security, by developing processes for preventing and responding to an attack and investing in resilient technology, you can maximise on risk reduction. At Speedster IT, we can offer you a tactical path to strengthening your cyber security.
