It’s a simple fact of life: if you own a business, you run the risk of loss. Many business owners don’t believe they could be a target. Some believe they are too small to be of interest. Others believe they could recover quickly from a loss.
The fact is, most cyber criminals don’t choose their targets — they flood computer networks with malicious emails, phishing attempts, and malware waiting to see who takes the bait. Once infected, your company’s data can be stolen, encrypted and rendered useless to you, or both. The cost of remediation, legal fees, and the loss of clients when they find out quickly exceeds what proactive defenses might have cost.
