How important is computer and cyber security?
Here’s a quick 1 – 2 minute read to remind us about the importance of cybersecurity.
Let’s take a look at some facts to put it in perspective.
Did you know that, according to a 2014 National Small Business Association Report, 44% of US small
businesses were the victim of a cyber-attack, with each attack costing the business on average $9,000?
Did you know that the National Cybersecurity Alliance’s StaySafeOnline.com reported 59% of
small and midsize businesses do not have a contingency plan that outlines procedures for responding to
and reporting data breaches?
Did you know that 77% of small firms believe their company is SAFE from a cyber-attack even though
83% of those firms don’t have a written security policy, according to the National Cybersecurity
Did you know that an overwhelming number of people don’t consider that a large company can absorb
the costs of a cyber-incident while those costs may suffocate a midsize or small business? What is a pain
and annoyance to large companies is catastrophic to smaller organizations.
Oftentimes, we forget the type of threats we all most commonly face. If you don’t have a security plan
and a disaster recovery plan, today’s a great day to start. Consider every scenario. You’ll remember
details that need to happen and would be totally forgotten in the middle of a crisis.
