Cybersecurity is a serious concern.
With more than 170 million personal records exposed in 2015 alone, and a 38 percent increase in cyber security incidents detected over 2014’s statistics, this is not an isolated problem or one that you ignore. These incidents incur enormous costs to repair, with an average cost per record of more than $150. Think about the damage that a serious cyberattack could do to your business.
- Lost Revenue and Customers: Some of the more high-profile cyber security incidents in the past few years include: eBay, JPMorgan Chase, Home Depot and T.J. Maxx in 2007. How many of these businesses consider a security threat before you decide to do business with them? Do you wonder about the level of security that has been implemented since these massive breaches? While an out-of-pocket cost is required to ameliorate any breach, the cost of lost revenue and customers makes it difficult if not impossible to assign a true value to a cybersecurity attack.
- Checking for Triggers: Intense pressures are on technology teams to address these threats of malware and hacking, while also meeting increasingly stringent compliance requirements. To ensure that an attack is detected as soon as possible, many software security platforms look for specific triggers that send notifications to network administrators, such as unusual network activity or unexpected activity on an individual device.
