Fully-personalised packages that thoroughly protect your data, your client information and your business systems
A very real security threat for small and mid-sized businesses
Does your business operate using the internet? Then you need to consider your Network Security.
Anytime your business and employees connect to the Internet, your business (and its systems, software, hardware and data) are exposed to cyber attacks. Network security measures protect you from these external attacks.
Contrary to popular belief, cyber attacks are no longer driven by rogue hackers looking to demonstrate their skills by breaking into huge organisations.
Nowadays, small to medium-sized organisations are becoming the most typical target for hackers—involving a shocking 43% of all data breaches—because they frequently have weak protection and are seen as easy, low-hanging fruit.
So, it doesn’t matter how big or small your business is; you must ensure you’re doing everything you can to keep it safe. Which is where the PowerbITs team can step in.
What can happen if you don’t protect your network, cloud and IT?
With a cyber attack occurring every 39 seconds, and nearly half of those on SMEs, it’s your responsibility to ensure the safety and security of your networks and data. So it’s worth considering, could your business handle the legal, operational, financial or reputational ramifications associated with data breaches? Here’s a glimpse at the knock-on effect of a network security breach.
PEOPLE, PRODUCTIVITY AND OPERATIONAL IMPACT
Data breaches, outages and interruptions will affect the productivity of your employees (who you will have to continue to pay regardless) and their ability to service customers. It may prevent your team from invoicing or collecting payments. Your website (and associated emails) may go down and remain offline. You’ll be desperate to resolve the issue and will need to call in urgent IT support and disaster recovery services at extra expense.
A single cybersecurity attack may cause days of disruption and operational delays, and costs can quickly spiral into the hundreds, thousands, and hundreds of thousands.
BREACH OF CLIENT AND BUSINESS DATA
A data breach does not only harm your operations; it also impacts your client relationships and may make it harder to rebuild public confidence in your business and brand.
Imagine getting a call from a past client or customer that someone is taking out loans in their name, and your team is getting calls and beginning to suspect you were the leak. (We’ve had people book in to talk to us about security with this exact problem).
When your client data has been compromised, reputation damage immediately occurs, and hard-earned trust is lost.
If you deal with financial or health data and are under regulation, then compliance costs associated with data breaches are substantial and beg to be avoided.
If your organisation experiences a data breach and you don’t report yourself, The Privacy Act Notifiable Data Breach means there are severe consequences and significant fines
