Data breaches and ransomware incidents happen daily throughout the world. Today’s businesses need to spend the time and money to recognize these threats and take the necessary steps to prevent these cyber attacks from happening to them.
Brian Gill, Chairman of Gillware, Inc., answers some questions in an article by Sunlight Media. They discuss the Top 5 biggest threats to business data and how to avoid them.
While executives at businesses historically don’t like spending money on cyber security, Brian stresses that this is exactly what needs to be done. Expenditures on equipment, software, and training are the main items that businesses should focus on with their cyber security budgets.
Questions every company should ask themselves:
– Do we have a plan in-place if our company’s data is breached?
– Do we have a disaster plan to help us recover from a cyber incident?
– How about having an Incident Response firm on retainer?
– Have we had a Cyber Risk Assessment done to find weaknesses in our security?
Identifying threats is important. Defending yourself from them may be more so.
