Importance of cybersecurity in the modern world
Over the past couple of years, the world has changed in a way that no one could have predicted. The way we work since Covid-19 began has accelerated our need for technology and the way we use it. Overnight we went from working in an office to working from home, relying on the online world as the safest way to communicate with those closest to us. This post-pandemic world has meant that cyber security has never been so important as there is even more opportunity for cybercriminals. With remote and flexible working, new vulnerabilities and policy failures are occurring all the time.
The impacts of a data breach
These new vulnerabilities and opportunities present a big problem for small businesses as it’s not just the downtime and improving your systems that a data breach or cyber-attack will cost you, it’s a whole lot more. For example, with the General Data Protection Act (GDPR). If your company doesn’t comply with GDPR then you could incur fines equalling four per cent of your company’s global turnover, or 20 million euros, whichever is higher.
Also, as customers share sensitive information about themselves and entrust businesses with it, so, if this information gets into the wrong hands and it’s because of a breach in your company’s security, then the reputational damage could be irreparable. According to Kaspersky, 40 per cent of all the financial losses that businesses incur after a cyber incident are down to reputational damage alone.
Mitigating the risk against cyber-attacks
There are plenty of ways you can mitigate vulnerabilities, reduce the risk of cyber-attacks, and keep your macs secure. For example, you can install additional software, monitor your systems for vulnerabilities, and remove any threats to your system. However, this takes time and a dedicated IT team which can be costly. So, an alternative option would be to use a compliance service that can monitor your macs for you, detect any issues and then remediate them without you having to worry.
