Today’s business owner understands that technology requires planning and budgeting. However, many IT plans do not include comprehensive cyber security strategies. A cyber-attack can shut down scheduling, billing, email, critical business systems, access to files, and potentially, the entire business.
Small to medium sized companies often do not see themselves as a worthwhile target. However, many small businesses do not implement industry standards and do not have the resources that large companies have at their disposal to protect their digital assets making them a prime target for a cyber-attack. It is essential that businesses of all sizes take cybercrime seriously and develop a plan to combat the issue.
There are a few simple steps that can be taken to reduce the risk of an attack. Your employees are the first line of defense. The next line of defense is putting together a complete hardware and software system that is designed to protect desktops, laptops, smartphones, servers, and all of your critical data from an attack. The third line of protection is developing a disaster recovery plan that will return your business to the state you were in prior to a successful attack. Learn how to plan now before a cyber attack occurs.
