So far this year, there has been a considerable amount of reporting on the increase in cyber-crime. Some specialists believe that the current pandemic, the rise in home-working, and the lack of security may have created the perfect ground for hackers. New research shows that cyber-attacks on UK businesses have shockingly increased by nearly a third in the first few months of the year, compared to 2019.
Most of these business attacks were breaching databases and file-sharing systems, with companies being attacked, on average, more than once a minute. This is a severe threat. In the past few years, companies such as eBay, LinkedIn, and Yahoo have had data breached, showing that no matter what size your company is, the significant risk remains. It is estimated that cybercrime will cost the world $6 trillion annually by 2021. What steps is your business taking to ensure your data is secure? There are plenty of options to keep cyber-savvy, including MFA (multi-factor authentication), password safety measures or outsourcing your cyber-security to a trusted IT partner.
