When buying presents for your loved ones at Christmas, would you leave them on your doorstep for everyone to see or take? You should apply the same caution to your network, don’t leave your data open for cyber criminals to access.
Hackers attack every 39 seconds, on average 2,244 times a day. In 2019 the average time it took to identify a security breach was 206 days! It has become more important than ever to ensure your business is cyber secure, especially with more and more businesses implementing home working as a permanent fixture.
Unfortunately, cyber criminals attack any business and don’t discriminate. Big names have been impacted by breaches this year, including Garmin, Government supplier Interserve and EasyJet – all resulting in loss of revenue and the potential of massive fines from the ISO. The implications of Covid-19 have been vast on businesses, personal lives and health, but there has been no exclusion in the tech world. Due to the pandemic, there has been a huge 30% growth in cyber-attacks in 2020. It has never been so important to secure your systems.
