Why is cybersecurity awareness important?

Protecting your business and your customer data is critical. The news is full of reports about large and small companies alike experiencing data breaches and hacking. These cyber-attacks might include files being held for ransom (ransomware) or customer data that hackers steal.

In 2019, slightly more than 70% of all small and medium-sized businesses reported one or more cyber incidents in their history. Having only anti-virus software is no longer sufficient. In fact, the majority of these smaller businesses impacted by cyber-attacks reported that the attacks got past their anti-virus software.

Being proactive by implementing the right cybersecurity measures is key in fending off hacks or data breaches.
