No week goes by that you don’t hear of a malicious attack on a IT system.
The rise of malicious activities on the Internet makes it almost impossible for anyone to continue operating on the Internet without any form of cybersecurity measures put in place.
Attacks are also getting more frequent and sophisticated. It is no longer a question of “if” but a question of “when” you will be visited by a malicious attack.
When an attack happens, this will result in a lot of stress and perhaps even disruption to a business.
This is made worst when private data is involved and privacy protection laws kick in.
Beside operational and legal issues, you will run the risk of earning a dubious reputation.
Your visitors and customers will start thinking twice doing business with you.
Having a security framework in place is paramount to ensure that your exposure to these attacks is reduced.
The cost of implementing such a framework is just but a fraction of any business impact that might incur upon a cyber breach.
Afterall, a weaker easier target is more appealing than a harder, tougher target.
