The video above gives you the starkest example possible of just how easy it is for a business to go from perfectly functioning and normal to an incredibly difficult and challenging afternoon.
Cyber-attacks and hacking are commonplace in the world today, and it only takes one wrong click to give a hacker access to a business. Every year, millions of dollars’ worth of data is invaded or taken by those who don’t need it, creating untold havoc and chaos throughout businesses all across this world. This kind of problem, of course, can be caused just as is shown above in the advertisement.
A simple click can be all it takes to send a business into absolute chaos moving forward. Quite honestly, this kind of thing terrifies us; it’s terrifying to know that your entire contact list or even your actual work projects could be at the mercy of a malicious hacker just because of one e-mail? If a newstart business is still growing and expanding they aren’t likely to have the infrastructure needed to protect against these attacks, and coach their staff to know better.
Just imagine the damage that would be caused by this happening to your business;
- Your accounts and finances will be exposed to the hackers and whoever they want to show it to
- Your payroll is there for all to see
- Your clients will be exposed and their privacy invaded
- All information about buying and selling within the company will be made available for public consumption
- Your projects that aren’t yet released or finished will become common knowledge, creating massive leaks within the organization
- All of your documentation will be lost due to data breach rulings
- You will be in the news and the headlines for all the wrong reasons
It’s impossible to actually put a pricetag on this kind of systematic destruction – however, many business owners do not adjust to this kind of future. They can’t be certain that the network is safe enough to allow employees to work without constraint; you can’t afford a breach of your business, it’s as simple as that. Clients will leave and reputational damage will be incredible; it could put you out of business, it’s as simple as that.
Fixing a data breach and getting through the damage caused will take far longer and far more resources, to achieve than preventing it at its source. That’s why you need to get in touch with experts who can help you get a security audit carried out on your business. It will help you understand what vulnerabilities there are within your systems, and why they absolutely need to be dealt with as soon as possible.
