Cybersecurity isn’t just a buzzword designed to create fear. Even as a small to midsize business, your company, employee, and customer data is one of your most valuable assets. For example, how would you feel if your price book was leaked to your customers? Or your customers’ sensitive credit card data was stolen from your database? These are real situations that can cripple your reputation and business. In fact, 60% of SMBs go out of business within six months of a cyberattack.
The smartest thing we can do as your service provider is to identify your greatest areas of risk for a security data breach. We use NIST standards to ensure best practices are in place from day one.
