Protect Your Network Today

Some are financially motivated, while others simply want to prove their abilities and instill fear in others. If you haven't given much thought to your cybersecurity needs, it's time to change that. 

The Dangers of Hacking 

Many of us don’t realize just how valuable our computer technology is. If a hacker compromises your servers, they can achieve the following: 

  • Stealing identities
  • Shutting down your business
  • Stealing credit card and financial information 

Computers contain our personal information, including names, addresses and credit card information. They also hold data for our employees, customers and business. The last thing you want is to betray the trust of your workers and consumers by letting it fall into the wrong hands. 

The Costs of Cybercrime 

Hacks aren't just frustrating to deal with — they're also costly. According to a 2019 study, cyberattacks cost small businesses an average of $200,000. Here are a few of the ways cybercriminals might steal from you: 

  • Accessing financial records or credit card data 
  • Stalling your business 
  • Taking information of value  

The most straightforward way for a hacker to steal is by directly taking your credit card or bank data. Not only is this frustrating to deal with, but it also wastes your time as you cancel cards or talk to your bank.

However, some hackers might hurt you financially by delaying your business transactions. For example, if they shut down your servers, you won’t be able to conduct business. They may also choose to take information from your employees – if this happens, it will be your responsibility to provide compensation.  

The Importance of Acting Fast 

Cyberattacks disproportionately affect small businesses. Did you know that about 60% of small companies are forced to shut down after a cyber breach? This is because most smaller companies don’t have the resources to properly recover after an attack. 

If you wait until a hacking attempt before employing cybersecurity measures, it will be too late. To prevent a hack from happening in the first place, you need to prepare ahead of time.
