In a business world were digitization and customers’ privacy are key, safeguarding data has become a real must. Facebook, Ticketmaster, Adidas, Orange… the image of these companies was severely damaged after a security breach became public knowledge. Here are 3 key reasons that explain why investing in cyber security means peace of mind for your business and its future.
When a safetey breach occurs, your company will be forced to invest in a safety net anyway. Establishing a cybersecurity department is a solid investment that not only will protect your firm from paying high fines, but it will also save your company from damaging its reputation and losing clients.
We’ve listed a number factors that will influence the total of costs, caused by a security breach:
Like we’ve mentioned before: not safeguarding your data might lead to a damaged reputation. But being able to guarantee that the data of your clients are protected, that’s priceless. You can even market this into a unique selling propostion and really get the word out that consumers can trust you with their data. A big advantage of choosing for this strategy is that it’s still early in the game: There aren’t a lot of competitors who focus on guaranteeing the safety of their customers’s data. This can also help to attract investors for your company.
Just when you thought you’ve protected your entire organisation – here comes the mobile technology! Corporate mobile applications are becoming very popular, but are much more vulnarable to cyber attacks. So can mobile malware embed itself quite easily via Wi-Fi. One of the most popular tactics among hackers is using rooters: Rooters request root acces to a smartphone or use exploits to obtain root acces, thereby gaining control of the device to spy on the user and steal information.
Let’s be honest, that was pretty convincing right?
