Cybersecurity for business
What is cybersecurity?
The importance of cybersecurity
The simplest explanation for the importance of cybersecurity can be summed up as follows: information drives business and businesses rely on technology. Cyber threats attack both. Cybersecurity practices aim to protect them.
The benefits, however, go much further. A good cybersecurity posture protects:
Financials: Downtime impacts revenue activity, reputation damage discourages new customers, fines for non-compliance can be costly, to name a few.
Reputation: Data breaches and downtime look bad and bad press negatively impacts customer perceptions.
Customers: Loss of customer data can have far-reaching effects on the lives and businesses of those you do business with.
Employees: A breach can result in employee data falling into the hands of cybercriminals.
Compliance: Businesses have a responsibility to protect customer, patient, client personal and business data, depending on their industry and regulatory compliance requirements.
