Cyber Security for small businesses
Advice & Guidance

Why Your Small Business Should Invest in Cyber Security

We face ever-growing threats in this age of ever-growing technology, and small businesses are the prime targets. Unfortunately, that’s not an isolated incident; rather, it’s part of a much larger trend that’s worsening.

Here are five reasons why your small business should invest in Cyber Security:

  1. It is common for cyber criminals to target sensitive information about small businesses, such as financial information, customer information, and business information
  2. Non-compliance with regulations: Some industries require businesses to safeguard customer data, and penalties can be imposed for non-compliance
  3. Downtime and productivity loss can be prevented with Cyber Security measures
  4. Investing in security measures can help a business stay on top of future threats: Cyber threats are constantly evolving, and businesses can stay ahead of them by investing in security measures

The value of data can’t be understated for the average modern business. Data is an integral part of businesses of all sizes and industries, whether they realise it or not. Some of the most important examples include:

  1. Employee information
  2. Client information
  3. Accounting data

There Are Many Avenues for Theft

Stealing your data can happen in many ways, and it’s hard to manually protect against all of them on your own, especially if you don’t know what you’re doing. For example, data breaches and/or theft can take place through:

  • Hacking
  • Physical theft
  • Phishing
  • Ransomware and other malware
  • Compromised passwords
  • Poor network security
