The route you take to preventing Cyber Crime is ultimately the one you take to beating it. For small and medium sized businesses, many disasters stem from poor IT security and they often lead to closure. But how do you keep up with the pace of felonious online activity to help your business stay productive, mobile and profitable?
Cyber Crime deserves your attention
Stuart Aston, Chief Security Advisor at Microsoft defines things nicely...
Over 80% of Fortune 500 organisations use the Microsoft Cloud*, and whilst that's a list we can't all be on, we can all certainly be serious about security by embracing the access we have to the same enterprise grade security protection that these companies use.
Where there is cash there are criminals
Illicit cyber activity can appear from a myriad of places, some far more noticeable than others. Take the TalkTalk Hack as an example. The personal data of 160,000 people was exposed. Even the biggest companies don't see it coming. TalkTalk allegedly had alarmingly minimal security measures in place to prevent the attack, which has cost the company £42 million. Fortunately for them, large and well-established organisations often have the resource to survive and sidestep such catastrophes; for a small business, however, the damage is often critical.
61% of businesses feel that security is a leading concern of cloud adoption**, and whether you control Finance, Operations, Marketing, Sales, or another part of the business, you have a duty to understand your strengths and weaknesses in order to build your businesses defenses. With an agreed strategy for security in place, and decision makers singing from the same hymn sheet, the cloud is key to protecting your business, your assets, and your growth.
