Reduce the Risk of a Data Breach

Most data breaches are the result of bad security hygiene.  A recent Ponemon study found that 55% of all companies had suffered a data breach in the previous 12 months.  This includes small and medium sized businesses who are most at risk due to a lack of awareness and skilled resources.  Data breaches can be catastrophic, costing more than $200 per individual record according to the study.  On average, small and medium sized businesses lose more than 4,000 individual records in a data breach resulting in damages exceeding $800,000 per incident.  As a result, sixty percent of small businesses that suffer a data breach go out of business within 6 months.  For larger organizations, the cost is significantly higher and cyber security insurance usually does not pay for negligence, lost revenue or stock value and reputational damages.  Post data breach, cyber security insurance premiums can increase dramatically.  Ransomware and cryptoware although less damaging than a data breach, can still create chaos and downtime and are becoming more frequent and sophisticated.

The majority of all data breaches are avoidable with a strong security framework architecture.  Don’t allow users to run with administrative or root privileges.  Use whitelisting technologies and good anti-virus protection to defend against ransomware, spyware and Advanced Persistent Threats that can lead to data theft, monetary loss and brand reputation damage.  Regularly patch your systems and scan for threats that can elevate privileges.  Implement access controls to protect confidential data and enforce strong passwords.  Educate and train users in good security practices.  Don't rely on firewalls and perimeter defenses alone.  The most prevalent attacks against businesses are Web-based and phishing attacks already on the inside.

Organizations today face unimaginable challenges as they do business in an increasingly interconnected and risky web of information.  Data is the most valuable resource that businesses of all sizes possess, and strong security should be a strategic investment to protect your business from a catastrophic data loss and damage to the brand name that your organization has spent years building.
