Last year, that set of solutions likely gave you very solid security. But today, the majority of cyber attacks are sophisticated enough to bypass a business’s basic security precautions.
What worked yesterday will not be enough to protect against today’s threats. Security needs to improve both proactively and reactively to maintain the same standard you’ve come to expect.
And of course, it’s much more budget friendly to solve this issue before it happens, especially knowing that the average breach costs a small business £38,436.
Candidly, there are a lot of IT companies in our area who aren’t recommending security at all. But that’s ignoring the threats around us and is a tremendous disservice to their clients.
Here at Netpoint Solutions we’d rather be up front about the challenges facing us. We’ve worked very hard to find solutions that are budget friendly, especially when you consider the cost of downtime or lost reputation due to a breach. Speaking of which, how long could you survive with no access to data or systems?
While you could be an actual target of a cyber attack or a social engineering scheme, it’s more likely that you’ll be swept up in a volume-based attack. To the threat actor, it’s just a numbers game. They know that some people will click a link, or send money to a bogus bank account, etc. So while you may not be targeted explicitly, you’re very much at risk. Plus, small businesses are the victims of the majority of today’s attacks (64%) and that’s because they are under-protected.
