Data is the new currency.
Information or data is the crown jewel for many organizations. While breaches at big corporations such as Target, Sony, and Home Depot make the headlines, small and mid-size businesses are still prime targets for hackers. These businesses are especially vulnerable as they don’t have many of the security measures found in large companies. They have to worry about perpetrators breaching their network through network devices or back doors, as well as employees knowingly or unknowingly handing out information to the attackers. The risks associated with security incidents can be damaging and can include financial, reputational, and operational setbacks. Small and mid-size organizations are increasingly embracing the need for a sound cybersecurity strategy that sets a foundation to combat cyber risks and recover from security incidents in an efficient manner.
