Cybercrime is a significant threat to businesses of all sizes, not just larger corporations. It especially affects businesses that depend on computerized technology to conduct their daily business. So investing in cybersecurity to protect businesses and data from malicious cyber-criminals and hackers isn’t just desirable. It’s absolutely essential to maximize resistance against threats. Technologies such as big data and the way businesses of all types and sizes capture data through various means such as via their websites, as well as by way of POS technology in retail settings, mean a mass of sensitive information is being held by organizations. That’s clearly information that cyber-criminals are keen to get their hands on. From phishing, malware, viruses, general data theft and disruption of service attacks, the threats are diverse and plentiful, and all have the potential to severely disrupt a business’s operations. The cost of recovering from a severe security breach can run into millions of dollars and no-one is immune; many household name companies have suffered security issues.
