Data breaches have been in the headlines more often recently and for all the wrong reasons. Some businesses have been brought to their knees because of data breaches. The urge to focus on the easy tasks can take precedent over what needs to be done. Protecting critical data is vital to the success of your business, especially if you are to retain the trust and loyalty of your customers.
The most powerful tool against cyber-attacks is prevention and selecting a security solution that can protect your business from the latest cyber threats. Developing a cyber-breach response plan and catching them before they happen is crucial.
A good response plan can limit the damage and scope of the breach. By taking swift action, damage can be kept to a minimum and public/employee trust can be restored. Once a customer’s trust is lost, it can take years to re-build that trust. However, if your customers feel confident that your company is doing its best to prevent cyber-attacks, they may feel better about buying from you.
The cybersecurity industry is fragmented with some businesses having over 80 tools from a variety of vendors to protect their data. Disconnected technology can lead to ineffective security.
