Why has cybersecurity become essential?

by | Uncategorized

Why has cybersecurity become such an essential resource for small to mid-sized businesses (SMB)? Ask yourself the following questions: 

  1. Do you gather sensitive information from customers?
  2. Does the sensitive data include financial or health records? 
  3. Does your business house or process confidential information or Personally Identifiable Information (PII)? 
  4. Is your organization’s Intellectual Property (IP) secure? 
  5. Can you attest for the daily operational processing of such data? 

To truly address these questions, your organization’s IT infrastructure must be leveraged to a level most have not presently attained. Today more than ever, the success of small to mid-sized businesses (SMB) is uniquely dependent on the way technology is utilized. Information Technology (IT) has continued to grow exponentially throughout the last decade, catalyzing businesses that can ‘do it right’ to prosper and succeed on an unprecedented level. 

However, increased use of technology raises associated risks and liabilities. Cyber criminals, malicious bots, and state-sponsored hackers are on the rise; cyber-crime has never been more profitable. Furthermore, federal and state governments have introduced new regulations compelling businesses to tighten-up their internal data processing and protection. 


Logical questions arise- 

  • How can IT be leveraged to increase profit? 
  • Will new regulations apply to my organization and I? 
  • How do we keep up? 
  • How does my organization protect itself and its employees from a cyber-attack? 
  • What new operational controls will my business be required to adhere to? 
  • How do I implement these regulations? 

Whether or not you can immediately answer, these questions persist.
